The United Nations has proclaimed the year 2011 to be “The International Year for People of African Descent”; however, the majority of Hebrew Yisraelites, black people and anyone not in the assembly hall for the opening ceremony did not even know the UN made such a declaration.  February is Black History month, Brother Aharone has written the following editorial comments on this twenty-eight day observance that is far less time than is actually needed to acknowledge such as massive history:

 

Black History and Vindicationalism

 

By EZRAH AHARONE 2/2011

 

As we celebrate another Black History Month during these political times of world turmoil and uprise, it’s important for America to project a world image that it has “turned the page” of racism in its own blood-stained history.  And while the relevance of this month has even been called into question since the advent of a Black president, I’m reminded of the African proverb that: “Until the lion has his historian, the hunter will always be the hero.” 

 

As such, when it comes to slavery and what is popularly categorized as “Black History,” America practices the seductive allure of what I call “Historical Vindicationalism,” where the harsh realities of events and narratives are masked and sterilized, while the end-product of Americanization gets epitomized as being lofty-enough to excuse and acquit the otherwise flagrant inhumanities of its means.  Thus, we as African Americans are psychologically expected to deem the inflicted pains of our history as well worth the ascribed value of the prize of Americanization.

 

Vindicationalism incubates historically and thrives unsuspectingly in various imposed forms and expressions.  In government for example, partisan members convened the 112th Congress with a showy display of patriotism by ceremoniously taking turns reading the US Constitution.  This was great political theater, especially for the viewing world audience, but what went largely unreported is that they propitiously skipped portions related to slavery . . . knowing that such uncut historical truths would naturally corrode the perceived integrity of the document and vainglory of the occasion. 

 

What also should not go unrecognized is that, the political ease of which Congress omitted references of slavery, stems from an overall greater political ease whereby Congress has ignored the unbroken link of causational inequities that 2½ centuries of slavery have systemically and endemically produced. 

 

Upon seemingly inhaling the same vindicationalist fumes, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN), who gave the Tea Party response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address, remarked in a subsequent speech that “the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States.” While she is wholly incorrect, this typifies a pervading psyche and a form of vindicationalism wherein Americans hold unconditional reverence for people and events of the 18th century, in ways that give near-Biblical inferences to the founding fathers and founding documents. 

 

As such, even though slavery is invariably and universally “wrong,” vindicationalism requires that we however are not to regard it as “wrong enough” to repudiate the character or diminish the greatness of the founding fathers.  Interestingly, to defend their historical imprint and further their just cause for posterity, Jewish cultures for instance avow unapologetically to “never forget,” while we seem resigned to fecklessly prefer “not to consider” the adversarial conduct of those historically responsible for our harm.  Since this would equate to political blasphemy on our part, men of Thomas Jefferson’s ilk are historically depicted at-worst as being benignly “complex and ambivalent,” rather than “immoral and inhumane.” 

 

To limit propaganda, nations should recount history with accurate terminologies since omissions, additions, embellishments and/or misplacements of words can distort facts to the point where false perceptions can become misleadingly disguised as irrefutable truths.  Euro-Americans understand both the dangers and advantages of word-manipulations, which is exactly why people in US courts are not merely demanded to swear on the Bible to just “tell the truth” . . . They must swear all-inclusively to “tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.” 

Mark Twain emphasized the importance of word-use, saying “Use the right word and not its second cousin” and “The difference between the right word and almost the right word, is the difference between lightning and the lightning bug.”  Nevertheless, in another example of vindicationalism, his 19th-century classic Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was recently cleansed of all 219 mentions of the “N-Word,” which he deliberately used to capture America’s racial “lightning” that still strikes in this 21st century.  

 

Vindicationalism works however to camouflage racism and the horrors of our history into sugar-coated blends with modern media, politics, and education.  Students at Grover Cleveland Middle School in New Jersey for example, were assigned to “write catchy slogans and advertisements for why slave labor was the best way to run cotton plantations.”  One slogan read: “Got Slaves? Get Cash and Get Some.”  Black professor Stacey Patton of Montclair State responded saying: “It is important for students to understand both sides,” while Rutgers University professor Clement Price didn’t have a problem “teaching the past through several lenses.”

 

Based on the overall vindicationalist nature of America’s system of education, experts and authorities will commonly impart “sides and lenses” that intellectually rationalize and reconcile America’s historical depravity.  Conversely, there is no such academic lens to legitimize catchy ads or slogans about the other side to 9/11 or the Holocaust, and neither would the rank and file of Black or White professors intellectually defend it. 

 

In fighting for freedom, Thomas Paine warned about such distorted thinking which satisfies the sociopolitical expediency of others, saying, “A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom.”  So, if “the truth sets you free,” then we as African Americans need political outlooks and historical interpretations beyond today’s vindicationalist versions and time-warped customs which deify Americanization in ways that are both highly disingenuous and factually untrue.

FROM THE DESK OF THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE LAWKEEPERS, CO.:

 

GOING INTO THE WILDERNESS IS A MUST / EXODUS II

Many Israelites oppose the idea of going into the wilderness, and some say we are already in the wilderness in our exile host nations. Some say they want to hear from G-D and believe HE will take them into the wilderness without the aid of man. They believe it is our vain imaginations prompting this return while others just refuse to leave outright.

 

We must go into the wilderness to be corrected:

 

Ezekiel 20:34-38

34. And I shall take you out of the peoples, and I shall gather you from the lands in which you were scattered, with a strong hand and with an outstretched arm and with poured out fury.           לד.

35. And I shall bring you to the wilderness of the peoples, and I shall contend with you there face to face.           לה.
36. As I contended with your forefathers in he wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I contend with you, says the Lord God.           לו.
37. And I shall cause you to pass under the rod, and I shall bring you into the transmission of the covenant.           לז.
38. And I shall separate from you those who rebel and those who transgress against Me; from the land of their sojourning I shall take them, but to the land of Israel they shall not come, and you will know that I am the Lord.


The wilderness as in Exodus was not within the exile of Egypt, but the Wilderness of Egypt, and the wilderness of today is not our host nations from whence we will be taken out.  See  Ezekiel 20:34.


We must tell those who do not know it is a must:


In the book of Exodus G-D uses Moses (and others) to take us out of Egypt and into the wilderness for correction before they eventually go into Israel. The point is G-D used men to do his works although it was considered G-D’S salvation.


Exodus 3:8;10;12,18-19

I have descended to rescue them from the hand’s] of the Egyptians and to bring them up from that land, to a good and spacious land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites.
(Here we see G-D stating HE will make the rescue.)

So now come, and I will send you to Pharaoh, and take My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt."

(Here we see G-D uses man)

And He said, "For I will be with you, and this is the sign for you that it was I Who sent you. When you take the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain."

(G-D is with us to aid success.)

And they will hearken to your voice, and you shall come, you and the elders of Israel, to the king of Egypt, and you shall say to him, 'The Lord God of the Hebrews has happened upon us, and now, let us go for a three days' journey in the desert and offer up sacrifices to the Lord, our God.”

However, I know that the King of Egypt will not permit you to go, except through a mighty hand.

(With reference to Deu 30:3-6 It will be achieved using the same method, “people”.)


1 Samuel 17:45-47

45. And David said to the Philistine, "You come to me with spear and javelin, and I come to you with the Name of the Lord of Hosts, the God of the armies of Israel which you have taunted.           מה.

46. This day, the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I shall slay you, and take off your head, and I shall give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines this day, to the fowl of the air and to the beasts of the earth, and all the earth shall know that Israel has a God.         מו.
47. And all this assembly shall know that not with sword and javelin does the Lord save, for the battle is the Lord's, and He will deliver you into our hand."

(G-D uses David yet in verse 47 it states the battle is the YAH’S through his righteous anointed that is.)


If we look at Judges 4, Judges 6, for example we see that G-D sends saviours (G-D uses his people as saviours according to Nehemiah 9:27 to do HIS bidding and free us from oppression and exile.)27. And You delivered them into the hands of their adversaries who distressed them, and at the time of their distress they cried out to You, and You heard from heaven, and according to Your abundant mercies, you gave them saviours, who saved them from the hands of their adversaries.


Judges 6: 12 The angel of YAH appeared to Gideon and said, ”YAH is with you oh mighty hero” the key statement being whether or not YAH is with us (Psalm 127). It further states in Judges 6:14 “Go with this strength of yours and you shall save Israel from the grip of Midian Behold I have sent you”.

Therefore we can see that G-D is telling Gideon he shall save Israel because G-D has sent him a man.


G-D uses intercessors.


Deuteronomy 4:5&4:15

5. Behold, I have taught you statutes and ordinances, as the Lord, my God, commanded me, to do so in the midst of the land to which you are coming to possess.

14. And the Lord commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and ordinances, so that you should do them in the land to which you are crossing, to possess.


There is much scripture I could quote regarding G-D using Israelites to do HIS bidding and for salvation. In the examples I have used here we see that G-D is with us. When Moses lead the Israelites out of Egypt G-D did HIS part by performing the signs and wonders.


Today do we not see these signs and wonders? G-D is starting to punish the nations for their wickedness (and sadly Israelites who want to remain here), plagues, earthquakes and,many other phenomena that we see everyday are directly from the CREATOR’S hand.

The CREATOR owns the earth and therefore dispenses HIS justice through what some might consider natural means, as G-D conceals HIMSELF through these occurrences. So, we have the signs and wonders and in the wilderness we will be corrected as the Israelites were. I do not doubt that we will see more of this and whilst in the wilderness, and if we fight for our release G-D will hear and act on our behalf.


We must fulfill our part of the covenant we made with G-D, and HE will do HIS part “HalleluYAH”!


Please, Israelites, do not expect magic or xtain ideology fantasy.  Xtianty and Israelite heritage (Torah) are different.


When we tell Israelites that we must flee, these our not our words but are what the HOLY ONE has relayed to us.


 Jeremiah 16:14-16

14. Therefore, behold days are coming, says the Lord, and it shall no longer be said, "As the Lord lives, Who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,"           יד.

15. But, "As the Lord lives, Who brought up the children of Israel from the northland and from all the lands where He had driven them," and I will restore them to their land that I gave to their forefathers.           טו.

16. Behold I will send for many fishers, says the Lord, and they will fish them, and afterwards I will send to many hunters and they will hunt them from upon every mountain and upon every hill, and from the clefts of the rocks.

(G-D is going to use fishers to return HIS people, and yet HE states that HE will take us in verse 15.)


Ezekiel 20:34-38.


It is not our vain imaginations that speak but the Holy Scripture. As an Israelite I want to encourage and not discourage my brethren.  So, why would I tell brothers and sisters to remain in their exile when we have the ability to try and get out of the host nations we dwell in?


Jeremiah 15:19

19. Therefore, so said the Lord: If you return, I will return you, you will stand before Me, and if you take the precious out of the vile, you shall be as My mouth. Let them return to you, but you shall not return to them.


Ezekiel 3:17-21

17. "Son of man, I have made you a lookout for the house of Israel, and you shall hear a word from My mouth, and you shall give them warning from Me.           יז.

18. If I say to the wicked man, 'You will die,' and you do not exhort him, nor speak to exhort a wicked man [to repent] of his wicked way, to save his life, he is guilty; he will die because of his iniquity, and I shall require his blood from your hand.           יח.

19. But you-if you do warn the wicked man, and he does not repent of his wickedness and of his evil way, he will die because of his iniquity, and you-you will have saved your soul.           יט.

20. And when a righteous man repents of his righteousness and commits injustice, I shall place a stumbling block before him-he will die; if you do not warn him, he will die because of his sin, and his righteous deeds that he performed will not be remembered, but I shall require his blood from your hand.           כ.

21. But you, if you warn him-the righteous man-that a righteous man should not sin, and he does not sin-he will live because he took heed, and you-you will have saved your soul."


Ezekiel 18:30….Return and bring back (others) from all your transgressions so that they not be for you an obstacle of iniquity.

Scripture like the above makes it clear it is our duty to relay the message to Israelites and boast of our CREATOR G-D.


Isaiah 42:1-8

1. Behold My servant, I will support him, My chosen one, whom My soul desires; I have placed My spirit upon him, he shall promulgate justice to the nations.           א.

2. He shall neither cry nor shall he raise [his voice]; and he shall not make his voice heard outside.           ב.
3. A breaking reed he shall not break; and a flickering flaxen wick he shall not quench; with truth shall he execute justice.           ג.
4. Neither shall he weaken nor shall he be broken, until he establishes justice in the land, and for his instruction, islands shall long.         ד.
5. So said God the Lord, the Creator of the heavens and the One Who stretched them out, Who spread out the earth and what springs forth from it, Who gave a soul to the people upon it and a spirit to those who walk thereon.           ה.

6. I am the Lord; I called you with righteousness and I will strengthen your hand; and I formed you, and I made you for a people's covenant, for a light to nations.           ו.

7. To open blind eyes, to bring prisoners out of a dungeon, those who sit in darkness out of a prison.           ז.

8. I am the Lord, that is My Name; and My glory I will not give to another, nor My praise to the graven images.


Isaiah 43

5. Fear not for I am with you; from the east I will bring your seed, and from the west I will gather you.           ה.

6. I will say to the north, "Give," and to the south, "Do not refrain"; bring My sons from afar and My daughters from the end of the earth."    7. Everyone that is called by My name, and whom I created for My glory, I formed him, yea I made him.           ז.

8. To bring out a blind people, who have eyes, and deaf ones who have ears.           ח.

9. Were all the nations gathered together, and kingdoms assembled, who of them would tell this or let us know of the first events? Let them present their witnesses, and they shall be deemed just, and let them hear and say, "True."           ט.

10. "You are My witnesses," says the Lord, "and My servant whom I chose," in order that you know and believe Me, and understand that I am He; before Me no god was formed and after Me none shall be. l           י.

11. I, I am the Lord, and besides Me there is no Saviour.

12. I told and I saved, and I made heard and there was no stranger among you, and you are My witnesses," says the Lord, "and I am God.

Isaiah 49:8-9

8. So said the Lord, "In a time of favour I answered you, and on a day of salvation I helped you; and I will watch you, and I will make you for a people of a covenant, to establish a land, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages.           ח.

9. To say to the prisoners, "Go out!" and to the darkness, "Show yourselves!" By the roads they shall graze, and by all rivers is their pasture.

(We are the servants/witnesses of our CREATOR G-D, and it is clear from the above that G-D is present when HE uses us to do HIS works)


Read II Chronicles 20,we must unite and cry out, we must go to the oppressor for the battle and only then can we expect results due to our faith in our G-D and we can boast of our CREATOR G-D as in verse 29

29. And fright of God was upon all the kingdoms of the lands when they heard that the Lord had fought with Israel's enemies.


Please, please, Israelites, investigate the scripture for yourselves.  When someone says we must remain, tell them to prove it by scripture.  What would be the point of our existence as servants (workers) if we did nothing to boast of our CREATOR?


We are not prophets telling Israelites what to do, but we are Israelites and servants Priest of the MOST HIGH.

 

Isaiah 61:1-6

1. The spirit of the Lord God was upon me, since the Lord anointed me to bring tidings to the humble, He sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to declare freedom for the captives, and for the prisoners to free from captivity.           א.

2. To declare a year of acceptance for the Lord and a day of vengeance for our God, to console all mourners.           ב.

3. To place for the mourners of Zion, to give them glory instead of ashes, oil of joy instead of mourning, a mantle of praise instead of a feeble spirit, and they shall be called the elms of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, with which to glory.           ג.

4. And they shall build the ruins of old, the desolations of the first ones they shall erect; and they shall renew ruined cities, desolations of all generations.           ד.

5. And strangers shall stand and pasture your sheep, and foreigners shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.           ה.

6. And you shall be called the priests of the Lord; 'servants of our God' shall be said of you; the possessions of the nations you shall eat, and with their glory you shall succeed [them].


Finally for those who reject the word because it does not suit their vain imaginations or they believe it is chauvinistic see:

 

Jeremiah 11:3-4

3. And you shall say to them, so said the Lord God of Israel; Cursed be the man who will not hearken to the words of this covenant,         

 ג.

4. Which I commanded your forefathers on the day I took them out of the land of Egypt, out of the iron furnace, saying: Hearken to My voice and do them, according to all that I will command you, and you shall be to Me for a people, and I will be to you for a God.


I do not doubt G-D can perform miracles, but I expect to see more miracles in the wilderness, as that is where G-D showed/demonstrated HIS presence to the Israelites in the first Exodus.


If you want to know more, then join us at our Exodus II meetings in Paltalk, see the forums for details of the next meeting. 

 

The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.

 

It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it,

the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.

 

Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.

 

Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance,

even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.

 

Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.

 

Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing:

for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.

 

And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water:

in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.

 

And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness;

the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

 

No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:

 

And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads:

they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”

Tribute to the New Moon:

Current Moon Phases

 

The service of this solar/lunar calendar of TORAH READINGS is by definition using the “LIGHTS” of the sun and moon, according to Genesis 1:14, to number the “days” of each month.  And the dark phases of the moon cooperatively and conveniently provide a break between the months.  If there were no dark phases of the moon, we would have a tough time determining when one month ended and when another would begin.  Hence, because the Commandment is to use the “Lights” in the Heavens for “Signs” for seasons, days, and years, the New Moon Crescent is what provides us with our first lights of each new month and these lights continue waxing and waning until they are diminished to the dark phases.  And then in two to three days, the New Moon Crescent reappears again starting the First Day of another new month.

 

Realizing that even some Israelites use the dark phase of the moon to call the new month, I would like to add one obvious fact.  By definition, there can only be a “New Moon,” per se, after the dark phase interval and when the New Moon Crescent reappears, thus, we understand the concept of having a New moon. 

 

If the dark phase of the moon begins the First Day of the month, then when the New Moon Crescent is “Sighted” that could approximately be as far into the month as the Fourth Day, i.e., the appearance of the “Light” in the Heavens could possibly fall on the Fourth Day.  It makes no sense to start to count the first dark phase of the moon as being the First Day of the month, as this process disregards the use of the “Light” in the Heavens to determine our “days,” as we are Commanded to do in Genesis 1:14.  Consider what King David said in I Samuel 20:24:  “…when the New Moon was come…”  He had to be speaking about the New Moon Crescent, as we are unable to “Sight” the appearance of the dark phase or rather see it “come.”  

 

It’s the absence of seeing the moon for forty-eight or more hours that enables us to identify the approaching Crescent “Sign” in the Heavens (mentioned in Genesis 1:14) that recognizes the moon as being “New.”    And upon “Sighting” this “New” Crescent” we distinguish it as being the “New Moon” and the time of the New Month, as well.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  The Hebrew New Year is also determined by the “LIGHTS” in the Heavens and not by the “sighting of barley,” as some Black Hebrew Israelites and European “Jews” advocate.

“For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make,

shall remain before me, saith the LORD,

so shall your seed and your name remain.

 

“And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another,

and from one sabbath to another,

shall all flesh come to worship before me,

saith the LORD.”

Isaiah 66:22,23

START THE NEW MOON WATCH ON THE EVENINGS OF

 

<<< MARCH 5,6,7, 2011 >>>

 

BY LOOKING IN THE “WEST” JUST ABOVE THE HORIZON.

 

“He appointed the moon for seasons…”

Psalm 104:19

 

The first “Sign” in the Heavens to provide the start of days, years and “seasons” can only begin with the “Sighting” of the New Moon Crescent - that which we can “see” in order for it to serve as a “Sign” and enable us to begin counting our days and months.   Just imagine not being able to “see” the moon at all.  How then could it be appointed for a “Sign” or for “seasons”?

 

“The natural thought might be that the moon is like a living being.  It is born, grows, reaches maximum size, then fades and dies, going through all these stages in one month.  Even today, we still talk of the thin crescent in the western sky as a new moon and the thin crescent in the eastern sky a month later as the old moon.  Half way between is the full moon.  As I explained earlier, this cycle of phases of the moon established the month as a unit of time, and the first calendars were based on this.”   ISAAC ASIMOV’S GUIDE TO EARTH AND SPACE, pages 79 and 80

 

In that the King of Israel is supposed to be a “Righteous Judge” (II Chronicles 1:11), it stands to reason that he is also supposed to be a “Righteous Role Model.”  Thus, if the King that GOD appoints over Israel observes a “feast” on the day of the New Moon, then wisdom tells the Nation of Israel to do likewise.  King Saul and the anointed David observed this service (I Samuel 20th Chapter).

 

To their and our hurt our forefathers worshipped all manner of symbols:  the sun, moon, stars, and images of gold and silver.  To observe the “Sign” in the heavens as being the New Moon “Sighting” is NOT worshipping the moon, but rather it is doing as we are COMMANDED in Genesis 1:14:

 

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:”

 

Some people feel that the moon has no “light,” but according to GOD’s WORD to HIS Prophets, it most certainly does:  Isaiah 13:10; Isaiah 30:26; Jeremiah 31:35; Ezekiel 32:7. 

 

***

 

“Sing aloud unto God our strength:  make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.

“Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.

“Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed,

on our solemn feast day.

“For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.”  

Psalm 81:1 – 4

 

(A Psalm of Asaph, the Seer –

one who should be well informed about GOD’s Ways)

 

“Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings,

and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God:  I am the LORD your God.”  

Numbers 10:10

 

Contrary to the belief of some Israelites, the moon does indeed shine!  Even if the Moon shines with the aid of the sun, i.e., reflects the light of the sun, IT STILL SHINES!  And the fact that Scripture attests to this fact, is what’s important:  Isaiah 60:19; Jeremiah 31:35; and Ezekiel 32:7.  Therefore, Genesis 1:14 is proof enough that we must use the shining New Moon Crescents as “…SIGNS, AND FOR SEASONS, AND FOR DAYS, AND FOR YEARS:”  

 

Some Israelites, along with White Jews, use the dark phase of the moon to determine the start of a new month.  If the dark phase of the moon lasts for “2-3 days,” then which of these days is supposed to be the distinguishing “Sign” that determines the First Day of the month?  Or do we just arbitrarily select either/or depending on the imaginations of our hearts?  

 

On the contrary, with the use of the sighted “Sign” of the New Moon Crescent in the Heavens we eliminate any confusion as to which day IS the First Day of the month. 

 

“So David hid himself in the field: and WHEN THE NEW MOON WAS COME, the king sat him down to eat meat.”   I Samuel 20:24

 

At the time of the dark phases of the moon (generally 2-3 days), as previously written, there is no “moon” in SIGHT.  Therefore, I Samuel 20:24 sheds more light on Genesis 1:14.  “WHEN THE NEW MOON WAS COME,” is clearly telling readers that this is a reference to a visible “Moon Crescent Sighting”  - the light in the firmament…i.e., the “Sign” for (lunar) days.  Thus, if we are to count all the lunar days (29.5) in a month, it only makes sense to start counting from the New Moon Crescent “when the New Moon was come” and NOT from the dark phases at the end of the month, which do not emit any “sign” or “light” in the heavens.

 

The only problem that presents itself when using the “New Moon Sighting” to call the First Day of the month is cloud coverage, as this prevents the ability to see the New Moon Crescent.   Nonetheless, when “Sighted,” one can easily distinguish the New Moon Crescent from all the other phases due to its thin sliver and its low position in the heavens.  And the reason is that no two days or rather phases of the visible moon are alike.  Hence, to use the New Moon Crescent as the “Sign” in the heavens, as we are COMMANDED to do for our seasons, days, and years, negates the belief that the “commandment was given to the luminaries.”  The “luminaries” fulfill GOD’s Commandments:  the sun shines and the moon orbits the Earth.  They have no need to determine seasons, days, and years.  Hence, our New Moons are obviously of more spiritual significance to the Nation of Israel than we are aware.  And for sure, the TRUTH concerning them are in GOD’s WORD to HIS Prophets/Seers - not the White Jews or other Gentiles.  All we need do is use wisdom, discern what’s written in Scripture, accept it, and act accordingly!

 

“Then Solomon offered burnt offerings unto the LORD on the altar of the LORD, which he had built before the porch,

 

“Even after a certain rate every day, offering according to the commandment of Moses, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts, three times in the year, even in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles.” II Chronicles 8:12,13

 

Unless there is an emergency, please try not to buy or sell on this day.  Conduct all financial and business transactions prior to the day of the New Moon.  Interesting enough, II Kings 4:23,24 constitutes the New Moon as being a day to seek “the man of God.”  Although the New Moon is NOT a Day of Rest, Our GOD did set it aside for recognition:

 

“Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.”   Psalm 81:3

 

“And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.”   Isaiah 66:23

 

“…When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn?…”   Amos 8:5

 

Probably, the Scripture that most determines and clarifies the fact that our New Moons are Feast Days is Ezekiel 45:17:

 

“And it shall be the prince’s part to give burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the NEW MOONS, and in the Sabbaths, in ALL SOLEMNITIES of the house of Israel:  he shall prepare the sin offering, and the meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings, to make reconciliation for the HOUSE OF ISRAEL.”   (Caps. are mine.)

 

Unequivocally, our New Moons are included in these “SOLEMNITIES” mentioned in Ezekiel 45:17.

 

“Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before the LORD in the Sabbaths [Feasts – NOT 7th Day Sabbaths*] and in the NEW MOONS.”   Ezekiel 46:3   (Brackets are mine.)

 

Thereby, this verse justifies the First Day of each month being our “Feast” Day.  It should be realized that the Feast Days that Our GOD selected (Leviticus 23rd Chapter) are “Holy Convocations,” i.e., on these days we cannot do any work.  However, because King Saul observed the New Moon as a Feast Day, we have every reason to do so, as well.   We also have learned that our forefathers traveled to the Temple to worship the Holy ONE on the New Moon (II Kings 4:23; Ezekiel 45:17; and Ezekiel 46:1), and when HE has HIS Temple rebuilt, then we will again be able to resume this service and worship.

 

When we return to our heritage and worship YIHOVAH according to HIS Ways, then we can establish our own “Calendar of the Universe,” whereby, the days of the New Moon and all GOD’s Holy Days will be recognized by the whole entire World.  And I am sure that it will be the desire of the Righteous Remnant and ALL the world to make a Feast to the Most High GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel every First Day of the Month. 

 

ALSO, I believe that if Lot (Genesis 19:3) and Abraham (Genesis 21:8) can proclaim “Feasts,” then there is no stipulation for NOT establishing Feast Days, as we so desire.  Therefore, to proclaim a feast to EXALT the Holy ONE of Israel on the First Day of each month is quite acceptable - given the Scripture (above) regarding worshipping Our LORD GOD of ISRAEL, Our SAVIOR, on the New Moons.  We should know that throughout the Tanakh Hebrew Israelites called for “feasts” for various occasions.  Therefore, we are within our rights to observe a Feast every New Moon to Our GOD, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel.   And those of us who love this WONDERFUL GOD and who choose HIM to EXALT HIM for being the ONLY LORD and SAVIOR can be at liberty to use the day of the New Moon to show forth HIS PRAISE in a “feast” and worship HIM in Jerusalem FOREVER. 

 

“And Solomon awoke; and, behold, it was a dream. And he came to Jerusalem, and stood before the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and offered up burnt offerings, and offered peace offerings, and [he] made a feast to all his servants.”

I Kings 3:15

 

*Leviticus 23:24,39 (Sabbaths of Feasts)

 

*******

 

A Tribute to GOD’s “HOLY” Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST - HIS WEEKLY ANNIVERSARY OBSERVANCE and SIGN between HIM and Israelites for HIS CREATION of the Heavens and the Earth:

 

“Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath,

to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever:

for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth,

and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.”  

Exodus 31:17,18

 

Since we know for a fact that GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath is a “Sign” between HIM and Israel, why take any chance to profane it?  Every passage about the Holy Sabbath of COMPLETE Rest stands strong in support of GOD’s Commandment to abide in our places on the Seventh Day (Exodus 16:29) – ever last one of them – including the passage in Jeremiah where we are Commanded to “Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the Sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem;”  Jeremiah 17:21   (Please read verses 21 to 27.)

 

Perhaps the wise thing to do would be to define the word “burden.”  But more importantly, we need to determine whether or not Exodus 16:29 is a Commandment or not.  And if it is determined to be one, then we should Fear the GOD of Israel and be obedient to what HE has Commanded of us.

 

“But the LORD, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power

and a stretched out arm, him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship,

and to him shall ye do sacrifice.  And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law,

and the commandment, which he wrote for you,

he shall observe to do for ever more;

and ye shall not fear other gods.”

II Kings 17:36,37

 

Why must we debate that which is clearly written for us to do and for very good reason, if we will only consider and think about it?  The Holy ONE wants us to be first to observe HIS weekly Anniversary of Creation, which is to keep HIS Holy Seventh day at REST, as HE did, in order that we might be REFRESHED!  

 

“REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY, TO KEEP IT HOLY”

Exodus 20:8

 

 

“See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”   Exodus 16:29

 

“And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said unto them, These are the words which the LORD hath commanded, that ye should do them.

 

“Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death.”  Exodus 35:1,2

 

“Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation [“HOLY DAY”]; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.”   Leviticus 23:3

 

“Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.”   Exodus 31:15 - 17

 

“And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.  And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”   Genesis 2:2,3

 

Significantly, in the beginning when the Holy ONE of Israel established this Sabbath Day of COMPLETE REST and when HE clearly COMMANDED the Children of Israel in the Wilderness to observe this Holy Day, HE MADE NO EXCEPTIONS! 

 

If “ALL” GOD’s COMMANDMENTS are sure, then for sure, we must give credence to Exodus 16:29 and abide in our places on GOD’s HOLY Seventh Day of Complete REST as we are COMMANDED TO DO!

 

“He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen. The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.”   Psalm 111:7

 

GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of REST is not only one of HIS Greatest WORKS of all time, but this Holy Day is an extraordinary “SIGN” between this Most High GOD, the CREATOR and HIS Chosen People, the Children of Israel!  This Seventh Day also marks the Anniversary of GOD ending the Creations of the Heavens, Earth, man, and all that is therein.

 

“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”   Genesis 2:1 - 3

 

“And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, Tomorrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake today, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.

 

“See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”   Exodus 16:23,29

 

“And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.”   Exodus 24:12

 

“Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should DO SO IN THE LAND whither ye go to possess it.”   Deuteronomy 4:5 (Caps. are mine.)

 

CONSIDER ALSO the fact that the CREATOR GOD of Israel only Commanded that we go to JerusalemTHREE TIMES in the year”.  Had the Holy ONE wanted us to travel to Jerusalem on HIS Holy Sabbath Day of COMPLETE REST, HE would have Commanded that, as well.  Thus, given Exodus 16:29, we have to realize, understand, and accept the fact that it was never HIS intention for us to travel and/or leave our places on HIS most Holy Seventh Day. 

 

“Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.  Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)  And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.  Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord GOD.”   Exodus 23:14 - 17

 

“Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast”   Deuteronomy 16:16

 

There is no Scripture indicating that Israelites traveled to Jerusalem on GOD’s HALLOWED SEVENTH DAY.

 

THE PLACE THAT OUR GOD OF ISRAEL CHOSE IS THE HOLY CITY JERUSALEM.

 

The Israelite Way of Life was set in stone in the Wilderness, as to how we are Commanded to prepare to live according to ALL GOD’s LAW, as well as for HIS Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST, i.e., how we are supposed to keep it, as well as the consequences for profaning it.  And there are no exceptions.

 

CONCERNING “HOLY CONVOCATION”

 

The issue stemming from the meaning of “Holy Convocation” written in Leviticus 23rd Chapter is real, and the interpretation is grossly misunderstood.  “Holy Convocation” does not mean “To Gather.”  And the sin committed by traveling and gathering on the CREATOR’s Holy Sabbath of Complete REST has grave consequences (Exodus 31:12 - 18).

 

Conclusive evidence that “holy convocation” DOES NOT mean to assemble is provided in the passage on Passover.   In Exodus 12:16 we are told that Passover is a “holy convocation” but yet, we are Commanded to observe this High Holy Day with our immediate families and only to join with another family if one’s members are too few for the lamb (Exodus 12:4).  This proves without a doubt that “holy convocation” cannot mean to assemble, but rather to keep the holy days “HOLY.”  Some call attention to the fact that because Israelites were Commanded to ”…turn in the morning and go into their tents”  (Deuteronomy 16:5-7) that this is proof of an assembly.  Those Israelite families that joined with others are the ones GOD Commanded to return to their tents.

 

The Holy ONE of Israel DOES NOT contradict HIMSELF!  HE would not COMMAND us to “Rest” on the Sabbath Day of Rest and also Command us to “abide ye every man in your place on the seventh day,” and then confuse us by telling us to “assemble” on the “rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD.”  This would make absolutely no sense whatsoever.  Therefore, if the Holy ONE of Israel said don’t bear a burden on the Sabbath Day of Rest (Jeremiah 17:21,22) and that our asses (used for travel) had to also rest, then for sure we have to “abide in our places…on the seventh day.”  Thus, using our cars and paying tolls and public transportation on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of Rest is absolutely forbidden!  And walking to the Temple or to any meeting place was and still is out of the question all because GOD’s Seventh Day is specifically to be kept as a DAY of  “COMPLETE REST” - Shabatone (as is written in Hebrew).

 

The wise, obedient ones understand the great importance of observing this Seventh Day of Rest exactly as GOD Commanded and will not add to or diminish from this Law of the “Blessed,” “Sanctified,” and “HolySeventh Day Sabbath.

AS IT WILL COMMENCE OUR HEBREW NEW YEAR!

 

 

<><><> 

 

“And God said, Let there be LIGHTS in the firmament of the heaven

to divide the day from the night;

and LET THEM BE FOR SIGNS, and for SEASONS, and for DAYS, and YEARS:”

Genesis 1:14

 

“He [GOD] appointed the moon for seasons

the sun knoweth his going down.”

Psalm 104:19

 

“Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day,

and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night,

which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar;

The LORD of hosts is his name:

Q and A (Question and Answer)

 

Why is it so important for the CREATOR GOD of Israel to JUDGE and destroy the wicked?

 

WHEN ALL THE WICKED ARE CUT OFF, THEN ALL MANKIND THAT WILL REMAIN WILL ENJOY GOD’s PEACE AND HIS HAPPINESS!

 

King David, the man after GOD’s own heart said:

 

“I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me. A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person. Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer. Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me. He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight. I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.”  Psalm 101

 

King David knew well that the CREATOR GOD of Israel would not tolerate evil and wickedness in HIS Holy City Jerusalem, and much less would dwell in it.  He also knew that one disobedient person in the midst could influence others to also be disobedient.  Therefore, as it is written above, he did what he knew would please the CREATOR and removed evil and wickedness from before the Holy ONE.

 

But King David’s efforts were not enough.  Today, the CREATOR must completely destroy the rebellious, otherwise fraud, deception, and transgression would be the mainstay, and HIS People would not only continue to profane HIS Holy Name but would defile HIS Holy Land and HIS planet, as has already happened.  Therefore, GOD must end this wickedness and establish HIS Righteous LAW in the hearts of all peoples.  It must be observed – not only by the King of Israel and Righteous men of GOD but also by heads of every household, in order that our children and the Stranger will learn to keep GOD’s LAW in Righteousness and serve and worship ONLY HIM.  And if this is not accepted as the order of each and every day, then let Israelites and peoples and nations be justly JUDGED.

 

Enough transgressions and catastrophes have engulfed GOD’s Earth, and now it is time to make HIS Land and HIS Planet ready to receive HIM in order that HE will once again live in the midst of HIS Covenant People, the Children of Israel, upon their return. 

 

Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God's: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.”   Deuteronomy 1:17

 

For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward:   Deuteronomy 10:17

 

Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.   Isaiah 58:1

 

For I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the LORD hath blessed.

 

For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.  Isaiah 61:8,9,11

 

Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.   Psalm 37:34

THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE: 

HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO CHANGE?

 

Since the Obama administration is busy attempting to "reform health care", I'd like to canvass those here at The LawKeepers Website to elicit your opinions and/or suggestions about how you think changing the system would work. I would also like for viewers to look at Michael Moore's "Sicko" documentary for some insight into the present American Health Care System.

 

We all are responsible for safeguarding our health and the health of those of our immediate families. And in the coming days and years we will face some real health challenges. Please send your comments and ideas in so we can discuss health and health care to find real solutions.

 

I'd like to know about people's experiences with either health care practitioners, e.g., doctors, nurses, Physician Assistants (PA's) or APN (Advanced Practice Nurses), Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNS), Certified Nurses Assistants (CNA's, Nurses Aides), Medical Assistants or experiences while patients are in hospitals, clinics., etc.

 

In the coming years we will see more and more "walk in" type clinics run by either privately run or individually controlled medical care.

 

I look forward to receiving your opinions and concerns.

95-Year-Old Ida Keeling Sets Running Record

 

By Alyson Mance on Feb 23rd 2011 3:30PM

 

 

 

If this isn't inspiration to hit the gym, then what is? Brooklyn, NY resident Ida Keeling, 95, recently set a world record for running 60 meters in under 30 seconds - 29.86 seconds, to be exact.


At 4'6" and 83 pounds, Keeling started running at 67 at the suggestion of her daughter Shelley and has since gone on to win a number of medals and trophies for her age group. In fact, she ran her first 5K race at 69!


While some aspire to merely live to 95, Keeling hopes to see 108 - four years more than her late grandmother, who passed away at 104. See her inspiring story below.


Would you now considering marathon training?

MUDALAPARA, INDIA - When she was a child, a helicopter would buzz over Sujata Sundaran's village twice a year, spraying pesticide over the lush trees on cashew farms nearby.

 

"It was like snowflakes falling from the sky. The children would run out to look at the helicopter," she recalled, sitting in her mud hut. "At that time, we did not know it would destroy our lives."

 

Sundaran, 27, said her legs stopped growing when she was about 6 years old, and her mother carries her around like a baby. Sundaran and thousands of other villagers here in the southern state of Kerala say that over the years use of a pesticide called Endosulfan left them disabled.

 

The villagers helped force a state ban on the pesticide in 2004 and now have joined an international campaign that could result in a global ban.

 

But the villagers have come up against a powerful opponent: the Indian government.

 

India is the world's largest producer, exporter and user of the low-cost pesticide, which farmers across the rest of the country continue to use on tea, cotton, rice and other crops. Officials say a ban would jeopardize the country's food security at a time of rising demand and leave millions of farmers without an affordable alternative.

 

"There are no reports of negative health impact or crop damage because of Endosulfan in any other part of India. If any fresh input comes to us, we will consider it," said Arun Yadav, the deputy minister for agriculture. "Kerala is the only place that had health concerns."

The three companies that produce Endosulfan in India, including one that is partly government-owned, say European competitors are pushing for the ban.

"The demand for banning Endosulfan in India is motivated by the vested interest of European pesticide-makers, who are interested in promoting their new patented products," Pradeep Dave, president of the Pesticides Manufacturers and Formulators Association of India, said at a news conference in December.

 

Last week in Mumbai, Anil Kakkar, director of the Crop Care Federation of India, which works with the agrochemical industry, said a ban would "result in a replacement of Endosulfan by alternatives which are 10 times more expensive and will be damaging to the farm ecosystem, as most of these are known to be harmful to pollinators such as honeybees."

 

The European Union, citing health concerns, has refused to import Indian tea if growers use Endosulfan.

 

Doctors in the Kasaragod district of Kerala say the aerial spraying of Endosulfan over cashew farms between 1979 and 2000 has caused more than 550 deaths and serious health problems in more than 6,000 people. Three years ago, the Kerala state pollution control board reported alarming levels of chemical residue in human blood samples, soil and water in the area.

(Rama Lakshmi - Washington Post)

"India has been stubbornly resisting the global ban. It is shameful because the government is looking at economic loss instead of health hazards," said C. Jayakumar, an activist who campaigns for the global ban. "Endosulfan is an endocrine-disrupting chemical and has to be stopped."

 

India's National Human Rights Commission said in December that the country's continued use of Endosulfan leads to "a grave violation of human rights" and that the "dangers it poses will linger and multiply through the generations."

 

More than 70 nations, including most recently the United States, Australia and Brazil, have banned the pesticide. But at a meeting of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants in Geneva last October, India abstained from voting on a ban, saying there was no scientific evidence linking Endosulfan to health or environmental problems.

 

The debate has gained momentum in India ahead of the next meeting, set for April.

 

Former agriculture minister K.V. Thomas told Parliament in November that the government would conduct a "fresh review."

 

Endosulfan is the thirdlargest-selling insecticide worldwide, and India's industry is worth about $100 million. India exports it to many nations, especially to those in the developing world, including Vietnam, Iran and Mexico.

 

 

Thousands of workers from Endosulfan-producing factories protested late last year against a ban and asked for a review of a 2002 government report that tested the blood, soil and water samples from Kasaragod and found harmful levels of Endosulfan residue.

 

A new nationwide study by the government-run Indian Council of Medical Research is underway, and results are expected soon.

 

"Without using Endosulfan, our farmers cannot survive or save their crop. It is a cheap, effective, broad-spectrum pesticide," said Siva Kumar, a pesticide trader in the neighboring state of Tamil Nadu.

 

Kerala's government recently announced that it would pay $1,100 to the families of people who died of Endosulfan-related illness and $40 every month to residents who are disabled.

 

"Six thousand patients living with disabilities is not enough scientific evidence to enforce a national ban?" asked B.C. Kumar, who helps Kasaragod residents secure compensation. Kumar's father was a cashew farm laborer and died of cancer.

 

On a recent afternoon, two men with no protective gear manually sprayed Endosulfan on a mango orchard in Tamil Nadu.

 

"I spray Endosulfan on about 90 mango trees every day in this season," said Ramachandran Andi, 30. "The chemical kills the insects that prevent the mango tree from flowering. The drops fall on me, too. But as a farmer, my first priority is to protect the crop."

 

Andi said he was not aware of any Endosulfan-related health concerns in Kasaragod.

FLUORIDE

 

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

 

Fluoride is a potent neurotoxin that's been fraudulently promoted as a cure for cavities for the past five decades. Finally, we're beginning to see the kind of research needed to hopefully reverse this great injustice…

 

The two recent scientific developments above deserve special notice as together they offer a compelling picture of the truth. Not only do we now have yet another study showing that fluoridated water has a significant impact on children's IQ, but researchers have also discovered that the benefits of topical application of fluoride is highly questionable.

 

Folks, there are FAR better options for decreasing tooth decay than using a topical poison or ingesting a harmful industrial pollutant.

 

Fluoride Does Not Make Your Teeth More Resistant to Decay

According to Science Daily, Americans spend a staggering $50 billion a year on the treatment of cavities. Fluoride, long heralded as the answer to decaying teeth, can be found in a vast assortment of toothpastes, mouthwashes and professionally applied fluoride treatments. It's even added to your drinking water for this purpose.

 

Now, a groundbreaking study published in the journal Langmuir has uncovered that the fluorapatite layer formed on your teeth from fluoride is a mere six nanometers thick. To understand just how thin this is, you'd need 10,000 of these layers to get the width of a strand of your hair! Scientists now question whether this ultra-thin layer can actually protect your enamel and provide any discernible benefit, considering the fact that it is quickly eliminated by simple chewing.

 

An Even Bigger Issue: Water Fluoridation

The conventional wisdom has been that topical application of fluoride can help strengthen your enamel and help prevent decay. If that's untrue, then the case against water fluoridation—the ingestion of fluoride—becomes even stronger than it ever was before.

 

There's just no doubt that ingesting fluoride has no beneficial effect on your teeth. In fact, there's overwhelming evidence indicating that fluoride is a potent toxin that can cause a wide array of severe health problems once ingested.

 

When evaluating the issue of water fluoridation it is also important to understand that fluoride is a drug. You can't get fluoride without a prescription. Yet it's being added to your water supply on a mandatory basis at various levels that may or may not be safe for various individuals, especially children, the sick, and the elderly. Water fluoridation is a major assault on your freedom of choice – to be drugged or not.

 

Sodium fluoride, which is a far simpler toxin than the fluoride compounds used for most water fluoridation, has also been used for rat and cockroach poisons, so there is no question that it is highly toxic.

 

Amazingly, the United States is only one of eight countries in the entire developed world that fluoridates more than 50 percent of its water supply. (The other seven are: Australia, Colombia, Ireland, Israel, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore.) In Europe, Ireland is the only country that fluoridates more than 50 percent of its drinking water, and England fluoridates 10 percent. Most of mainland Europe is not fluoridated, and yet, according to World Health Organization data, their teeth are just as good, if not better than Americans'.

 

Studies Link Water Fluoridation to Reduced IQ in Children

The latest study linking water fluoridation to lowered IQ was announced in a December 21 news release. However, this study was recently withdrawn from publication according to Jane Schroeder (NIH/NIEHS). In an email response she explained the reason for the withdrawal as follows:

 

"Following Ahead of Print publication EHP learned that many of the data had been published in a previous paper (Xiang et al. 2003. Effect of fluoride in drinking water on children's intelligence. Fluoride 36: 84-94), in violation of EHP¹s policy regarding the use of previously published material in original Research Articles. Consequently, the paper had to be withdrawn from publication."

 

That said, the data published in 2003 still stands and is still valid. Dr. Connett has also stated that his comments still stand.

 

According to Paul Connett, director of the Fluoride Action Network:

 

"This is the 24th study that has found this association, but this study is stronger than the rest because the authors have controlled for key confounding variables and in addition to correlating lowered IQ with levels of fluoride in the water, the authors found a correlation between lowered IQ and fluoride levels in children's blood.

 

This brings us closer to a cause and effect relationship between fluoride exposure and brain damage in children.

What is also striking is that the levels of the fluoride in the community where the lowered IQs were recorded were lower than the EPA's so-called 'safe' drinking water standard for fluoride of 4 ppm and far too close for comfort to the levels used in artificial fluoridation programs (0.7 – 1.2 ppm)." 

 

Trained as a chemist specializing in environmental chemistry, Dr. Connett is known throughout the world as a leader in the movement opposing water fluoridation because of his knowledge base. His organization, the Fluoride Action Network, contains a wealth of information on this topic.

 

Earlier this year I joined forces with Connett to publicize his game plan to end water fluoridation in Canada and the United States. I'll review it again at the end of this article. 


In December 2010, a second study reporting an association with exposure to fluoride and lowered IQ in children was pre-published in the Journal of Hazardous Materials.  

 

According to the authors, “our study suggested that low levels of fluoride exposure in drinking water had negative effects on children’s intelligence and dental health and confirmed the dose–response relationships between urine fluoride and IQ scores as well as dental fluorosis.”

 

This study indicates a 5 point lowering in IQ as the fluoride level in drinking water went from about 0.3 ppm to 3.0 ppm. 

 

Fluoride has Been Repeatedly Linked to Brain Damage

In addition to this study, there are 23 more from four different countries (Mexico, Iran, India and China), which indicate that even moderate exposure to fluoride lowers IQ in children.

 

According to Dr. Connett, there are also more than 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage, spanning all the way back to 1941. Unfortunately, most of the IQ studies have been unavailable in English, which is why the 2006 fluoride report created by the National Research Council of the National Academies contained only five of the available studies.

 

Still, while reviewing just 20 percent of the evidence, the panel concluded that there was a consistent and plausible link between fluoride exposure and reduced IQ. The news release quotes Tara Blank, Ph.D., the Science and Health Officer for the Fluoride Action Network as saying:

 

 "Millions of American children are being exposed unnecessarily to this neurotoxin on a daily basis. Who in their right mind would risk lowering their child's intelligence in order to reduce a small amount of tooth decay, for which the evidence is very weak."

Indeed.

 

According to Dr. Connett,  the newest studies show that over 40 percent of American children are overexposed to fluoride. How can we know? Because they have the telltale sign of dental fluorosis. In its mildest form, dental fluorosis looks like little white specks on your teeth. But as it gets more serious, it begins affecting more of the surface of your teeth, creating yellow, brown and orange mottling. 

 

Promoters of fluoridation scoff at these signs, saying that they're "just cosmetic."

 

But, since we already know that water fluoridation does NOT effectively reduce dental caries, this is an unnecessary cosmetic defect, and, worse yet, it is a worrisome indication that your body has been overexposed to fluoride. If it's having a detrimental, visual effect on the surface of your teeth, you can be virtually guaranteed that it's also damaging something else inside your body, such as your bones.

 

Other Fluoride-Induced Health Problems

In fact, fluoride will accumulate in your body and can, over time, lead to far more serious health concerns. There are plenty of studies showing the dangers of fluoride to your health—besides dental fluorosis—such as:

 

Increases lead absorption

Disrupts synthesis of collagen

Hyperactivity and/or lethargy

Muscle disorders

Brain damage, and lowered IQ

Arthritis

Dementia

Bone fractures

Lowers thyroid function

Bone cancer (osteosarcoma)

Inactivates 62 enzymes

Inhibits formation of antibodies

Genetic damage and cell death

Increases tumor and cancer rate

Disrupts immune system

Damages sperm and increases infertility

 

Parents Beware: Never Use Fluoridated Tap Water when Making Infant Formula

Most of the people who are educated about fluoride will avoid drinking municipal tap water that is fluoridated, and a reverse osmosis system is about the only way to rid your water of fluoride. However, there are many who simply don't have the resources or the know-how to protect themselves and their young children. In November of 2006, the American Dental Association (ADA) sent out an email to alert its members of their recommendation to parents to not use fluoridated tap water to make infant formula. A few days later, the CDC followed suit.

 

But neither of them openly informed the public!

 

So millions of parents are still using tap water to make up formula, oblivious of the fact that the agencies that promote fluoridation in this country have issued a specific warning against using fluoridated water for this purpose. Not only that, but by fluoridating the municipal water supply, you doom many low income families to fail to protect their young children from this dangerous drug, even if they have this information.

 

What's the REAL Cause of Tooth Decay?

Tooth decay is caused by acids in your mouth, typically created from sugar being metabolized by bacteria (Streptococcus mutans), and as you may already know, the number one source of calories in the United States is high fructose corn syrup.

 

The acid produced then attacks your enamel. Eventually the bacteria can get into the dentine, at which point tooth decay sets in. You typically don't find dental caries in more primitive societies that do not consume these vast amounts of sugar. So, the real answer lies in your diet. Avoid excessive sugar consumption, and your dental health will improve along with the rest of your body.

 

How You Can Help End Water Fluoridation in Canada and the United States

The Fluoride Action Network is an absolutely phenomenal resource for further education, and they're doing much to pressure the US government for change.

 

Later this year we plan on developing a massive social networking initiative to form local groups in which you can work on removing fluoride in your local community. We will have access to online tools that will help you replicate success other Canadian and American municipalities have had in removing fluoride.

 

Until then if you are a professional you can sign FAN's  statement calling for an end to fluoridation worldwide now been signed by more than 3,230 professionals. We encourage all medical and science professionals to sign this statement.

 

Our fluoride initiative will largely focus on Canada, because 60 percent of Canada is already non-fluoridated. If we can get the rest of Canada to stop fluoridating their water, we believe the U.S. will be forced to follow. If you live in Ontario, Canada, please join the ongoing effort by contacting Diane Sprules at diane.sprules@cogeco.ca. The point-of-contact for Toronto is Aliss Terpstra. You may email her at aliss@nutrimom.ca

 

We're also going to address the two US communities: Austin, Texas and San Diego, California. If you live in Austin, Texas, you can join the effort by contacting Rae Nadler-Olenick at either: info@fluoridefreeaustin.com or luoride.info@yahoo.com, or by regular mail or telephone:

 

POB 7486

Austin, Texas 78713

Phone: (512) 371-3786 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting            (512) 371-3786      end_of_the_skype_highlighting

 

If you're in San Diego, California, contact Patty Ducey-Brooks, publisher of the Presidio Sentinel at pbrooks936@aol.com .

 

Additionally, New York City council member Peter Vallone, Jr. introduced legislation on January 18 “prohibiting the addition of fluoride to the water supply" in New York City. The ensuing debate alone could have major significance for our efforts in the US, considering that NYC is the nation's largest city.

 

Therefore, New York City is now also on our list of targeted cities in North America. The point person for this area is Carol Kopf, at the New York Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation (NYSCOF). Email her at NYSCOF@aol.com . Please contact her if you're interested in helping with this effort.


In addition, we're willing to support any credible activist for this cause, who is scientifically based and grounded, regardless of where you live in the US. We can provide resources to help support you in your effort to eliminate fluoride from your local community – and it really needs to be a community battle.

 

We're not going to be able to pass a federal law against fluoridation. There is not going to be a Presidential mandate or even a State-wide elimination. This change will occur one community at a time.

 

So please, get informed; stay involved. In addition to the Fluoride Action Network, you can find a wealth of scientific literature at this link. I also highly recommend getting a copy of Dr. Connett's new book, The Case Against Fluoride to learn more.

REGARDING OTHER MATTERS OF HEALTH AND EXERCISE…

 

As always, before starting ANY exercise program and/or diet, check with your doctor and get his approval.  This is all about being safe rather than sorry. 

 

And if you feel you are suffering from depression, do know that there are medications available for you.  Don’t be embarrassed; this malady goes with the RAT RACE.  Therefore, see your doctor, and feel better fast! 

 

Have you started that “Walking” for weight loss and healthy heart routine, yet? There is no excuse for not going it alone, joining with someone, or even forming a group to take that walk at least five (5) times a week and for 40 minutes minimum.  So, stop procrastinating and get started.  Walk to the tune of Scripture or your favorite upbeat music.  And if you prefer the quiet, walk and meditate with the Most High.  Just make sure that you make time for your body and soul.  You’ll see and feel the difference after just two weeks.

THE 52-WEIGHT-LOSS DIET PLAN

 

Recently, I heard on the news that soon people will be spending a dollar out of every five for medical expenses.  But if we are healthy, we don’t have to fall prey to this reckoning.  As we grow older, we gain weight.  I am a witness!  And guess what?  We do not need this extra load we are carrying.  Therefore, I am doing something about it.

 

My friend and I have decided to embark upon a Weight-Loss Plan to lose 52 pounds in one year.  We have started by promising to lose one pound a week.  Thus, we hope to lose 52 pounds by the second week in February 2007.  We have already started, but it’s not too late for YOU to join with us.  So, hop on board and be a NEW HEALTHIER, LIGHTER WEIGHT this time next year!

 

Some of the things we plan to do are:

 

-limit our intake of “white” foods:  rice, bread, potatoes, ice cream, sugar, etc.

-eliminate fast foods and processed foods

-walk at least 3 days a week

-do not eat after 8 P.M. – drink green tea with mint

-eat more fruits and veggies

-bake rather than fry our meats

-drink plenty of water and tea

-weigh in every Tuesday and E-mail the other party the new weight status

 

A weekly journal is kept of weight lost or gained.  And there is no fair or fun cheating. 

 

If you do not need to lose 52 pounds, then adjust the plan to the amount of pounds to lose and time frame appropriate for you.  If you need any help, let me know.

 

The Brothers are welcomed to join in the program.  By all means, do feel free to share your progress.  List your name, the date you started and the weight you lose each week, or if you prefer to only post periodically, then list the date you started and the amount you lost.  If you have any special ways to lose a fast pound here and there, by all means do share.

 

Let’s start having some fun.  The more competition, the more encouraged we will ALL be to stick with this Weight-Loss-Diet Plan. 

 

On my first week, I lost four pounds, and I could feel the difference on my walk as I climbed the hills.  My husband and I both try to walk three days a week for forty-five minutes.  We do about four miles each day.

 

Don’t forget to first check with your doctor!  Better safe than sorry.

 

Now, get started and feel good and look even better!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY AND FOREVER:

 

Let’s keep YIHOVAH and HIS LAW our focus and pray for deliverance and fulfillment of all of GOD’s WORD, so that every Nation will show forth HIS Praise and Exalt HIM above all other gods.

THE  GREATEST  “SPOIL”  OF  ALL

 

The Israelites received Reparations for their free labor when they left out of Egypt (Exodus 12:35,36, Psalm 105:37).   Note also that Reparations were given to Ezra for the building of GOD’s Temple and for the service of the House of the LORD GOD of Israel (Ezra 7:12 –21).  And it is prophesied that we will again receive compensation for our free labor and bondage in this modern-day Egypt (all the lands that took Israelites captive):

 

“The Lord said, Verily it shall be well with thy remnant; verily I will cause the enemy to entreat thee well in the time of evil and in the time of affliction.”   Jeremiah 15:11

EDITORIAL  PERSPECTIVE:

 

THE CREATOR GOD IS MAKING HIS MOVE

HE IS TAKING BACK HIS UNIVERSE!

 

HIS WORLD MUST BE OF PEOPLES

WHO KNOW AND FEAR HIM

FOR HIS BEING THE CREATOR OF THIS UNIVERSE

WHO WILL WORSHIP HIM,

AND WHO CHOOSE

TO LIVE IN HIS WORLD IN RIGHTEOUSNESS!

 

Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail,

none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded,

and his spirit it hath gathered them.

Isaiah 34:16

 

Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another:

and the LORD hearkened, and heard it,

and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD,

and that thought upon his name.

Malachi 3:16

The CREATOR GOD no doubt now feels just as HE did before the FLOOD and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.  It has certainly been a while since any great destruction has occurred on this magnitude that would annihilate so many people and that was so famous and absolute as were these devastations.  But what is the reason for the CREATOR making HIS MOVE again to Judge the wicked?  Surely, people’s sins against the CREATOR have reached heights and dimensions never seen before.  Therefore, if the CREATOR does nothing, then mankind will forever prevent HIM from fulfilling HIS Promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel.

 

Perhaps, Our GOD is troubled about not yet fulfilling HIS Promises to Abraham and to Isaac and Jacob.  Or maybe HE is hearing our prayers just as HE heard the murmurings of our forefathers when they were in Egyptian bondage.

 

And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them.   Exodus 2:24,25

 

For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?  And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?   Deuteronomy 4:7

 

Will Our GOD of Israel hear us and be so Merciful towards us also and bring an end to our captivity, as well as and end to this world of depravity and false worship?  Of course HE will!  Those of us who knew deep in our hearts that something was wrong were comforted when learning of HIS Truth.  So, consider what HE has already done for us, and realize that HE will do even more, if we will only return to HIM as HE has Commanded of us.  Our GOD of Israel has brought us out of GROSS DARKNESS, and has shown us that the religion we had adopted was a fraud.  Our GOD has shown us that we are the SEED of the Biblical Israelites, and that to return to HIM and to our own heritage, all we need do is embrace HIS Righteous Ways – HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments and live by them, which means to worship and serve HIM and ONLY HIM!

 

Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.”   Deuteronomy 4:6

 

And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul; That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee. If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee: And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.”   Deuteronomy 30:1 – 5

 

That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”   Deuteronomy 30:20

 

Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations: But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.   Nehemiah 1:8,9

 

“…When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live. The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.   Ezekiel 18:19 - 22

 

I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

 

“Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.   Hosea 14:4,9

 

We should understand that all this chaos and confusion and uprisings breaking out all over the globe has to do with the MIGHTY HAND of the CREATOR GOD at WORK.  And from reading the Hebrew Scriptures, we know it is prophesied that HE will Judge the wicked and take back HIS Land of Israel, HIS Holy City, Jerusalem, and, yes, take back HIS Covenant People of Israel.  And let us not forget that this whole purpose is for HIS Holy Name’s Sake, and so that HE will be GLORIFIED!

 

I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.   Isaiah 42:8,9

 

Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went. And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.”   Ezekiel 36:22 - 25

 

And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

 

“Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.   Isaiah 13:11,13

 

Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.  And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word. The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

 

“And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.”   Isaiah 24:1 – 6,18

 

Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it. For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter. Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood. And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree. For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.

 

“For it is the day of the LORD'S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.   Isaiah 34:1 – 5,8

 

For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.   Isaiah 66:15,16

 

A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the LORD. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.”   Jeremiah 25:31 – 33

 

For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he.   Jeremiah 31:11

 

For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink. Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompence me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head; Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things: The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border. Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompence upon your own head: And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken it. Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.”   Joel 3:1 – 15

 

Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.   Zephaniah 3:8

 

Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory. Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.   Isaiah 60:18 – 21

 

When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:   Psalm 92:7

 

Consider the consequences IF these heathenish and pagan lifestyles resume and people continue to die from man-made ideologies for which there is no justification.  Capitalism and greed have created “the haves and the have nots” for fear of competition with Blacks and other people of color.  The work week was established in order that Whites would be sustained the supreme race.  Everything in place is to keep them in power and in control of their government and society and to sustain their principles and philosophies.  Even food processing, chemicals, and pharmaceutical drugs are under their control to heal and/or to harm depending upon profit or loss, or rather greed.

 

At the end of the day, some Whites will turn to the CREATOR GOD and seek HIS Mercy, and some won’t.

 

O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.   Jeremiah 16:19

 

Nevertheless, if White supremacy were to continue, what would become of Israelites?  What remembrance of the GOD of Israel and HIS Truth will remain, as it is written in HIS Book of the Law?  Given more time for the wicked in this Hell, how many more useless man-made religions will be invented to deceive the world and bring people to even greater despair?  Let us PRAISE OUR GOD for HIS intervention to change the times, to change this present corrupt world system that upholds many, many evils and that strengthens the hands of the wicked. 

 

The CREATOR GOD obviously feels that it is time for HIM to end the Gentile Ways that have literally turned HIS world upside down.  If HE doesn’t, then these horrific heathenish religions and their so-called “civilizations” will continue forever, and all of us will be in jeopardy and our dreams to be free of Gentile control will never come to fruition.   And worse, the CREATOR GOD will never be EXALTED for all that HE deserves.

 

Given the prophecies being fulfilled before our eyes, now more than ever, we must consider “Fleeing” Babylon, as it is slated to be destroyed.  Moreover, it is prophesied that the SEED of Jacob will return.

 

For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them. Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid. For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.   Jeremiah 30:8 - 11

 

And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land. Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword. Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished. Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it. Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children. And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.   Isaiah 13:14 - 19

 

The word that the LORD spake against Babylon and against the land of the Chaldeans by Jeremiah the prophet. Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces. For out of the north there cometh up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate, and none shall dwell therein: they shall remove, they shall depart, both man and beast.”   Jeremiah 50:1 – 3

 

In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the LORD their God. They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come, and let us join ourselves to the LORD in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten. My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace. All that found them have devoured them: and their adversaries said, We offend not, because they have sinned against the LORD, the habitation of justice, even the LORD, the hope of their fathers. Remove out of the midst of Babylon, and go forth out of the land of the Chaldeans, and be as the he goats before the flocks. For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country: and they shall set themselves in array against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain. And Chaldea shall be a spoil: all that spoil her shall be satisfied, saith the LORD.”   Jeremiah 50:4 – 10

 

Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will raise up against Babylon, and against them that dwell in the midst of them that rise up against me, a destroying wind; And will send unto Babylon fanners, that shall fan her, and shall empty her land: for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about. Against him that bendeth let the archer bend his bow, and against him that lifteth himself up in his brigandine: and spare ye not her young men; destroy ye utterly all her host. Thus the slain shall fall in the land of the Chaldeans, and they that are thrust through in her streets. For Israel hath not beenforsaken, nor Judah of his God, of the LORD of hosts; though their land was filled with sin against the Holy One of Israel. Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD'S vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence. Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD'S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.  Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: howl for her; take balm for her pain, if so be she may be healed. We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.”   Jeremiah 51:1 – 9

 

I have learned about Israelites’ plans for survival in the United States during times of great turmoil.  It is called ALD (Alternative Living Day).  They determined means to contradict what’s written in the Hebrew Scriptures.  The GOD of Israel speaks about a great destruction - a “Time of Jacob’s Trouble” and he will be saved out of it.  I am confused as to why Israelites would choose to try to weather GOD’s Wrath rather than to “Flee” as we have been advised to do.

 

Noah and no one else could make the CREATOR change HIS mind about the FLOOD, and neither Abraham nor Lot could persuade the CREATOR to spare Sodom and Gomorrah from everlasting destruction and damnation.  So, why would Israelites want to entertain a survival plan and remain in a land rather than “Flee” it, albeit, the land of our captivity that is destined to be destroyed forever?  This makes absolutely no sense to me, for as we know, the CREATOR GOD’s Judgment will be fulfilled!

 

A sword is upon the Chaldeans, saith the LORD, and upon the inhabitants of Babylon, and upon her princes, and upon her wise men.

 

“As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof, saith the LORD; so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein.   Jeremiah 50:35,40

 

Why not gather to plan for our EXODUS and our return to our heritage to show forth the PRAISES of Our GOD, the CREATOR of all this Universe?  If our hearts are right, there will be no need for us to make survival plans, as Our Loving GOD of Israel will make them for is!

 

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.   Psalm 91:1 – 12

 

Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger.   Zephaniah 2:3

 

We must see GOD’s HAND in ending our captivity and ending all this sin and transgression in order that we realize HIS Great Powers at WORK.  Then we will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that HE is Our GOD of Israel that is again performing these wondrous ACTS for HIS Great Name’s Sake to prove to HIS Chosen/Covenant People that HE is the ONE True and Living GOD, and that there is none else!!!

 

Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live? Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes? Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him. Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire. And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt;   Deuteronomy 4:33 – 37

 

Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.   Psalm 106:8

 

But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy name's sake: because thy mercy is good, deliver thou me.   Psalm 109:21

 

Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.   Psalm 115:1

 

Quicken me, O LORD, for thy name's sake: for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble. And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.   Psalm 143:11,12

 

For in mine holy mountain, in the mountain of the height of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, there shall all the house of Israel, all of them in the land, serve me: there will I accept them, and there will I require your offerings, and the firstfruits of your oblations, with all your holy things. I will accept you with your sweet savour, when I bring you out from the people, and gather you out of the countries wherein ye have been scattered; and I will be sanctified in you before the heathen. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall bring you into the land of Israel, into the country for the which I lifted up mine hand to give it to your fathers. And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have wrought with you for my name's sake, not according to your wicked ways, nor according to your corrupt doings, O ye house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.   Ezekiel 20:40 – 44

 

Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went. And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.   Ezekiel 36:22,23

 

So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.   Ezekiel 39:7

 

If we do not take heed to GOD’s WORD at the mouth of HIS Prophets, we can expect to fall in HIS Wrath upon the heathen and upon all who choose to ignore HIS warnings.  This is the Day of the LORD upon the wicked of all the world, and more than anything, we must get our hearts right with Our GOD.  HE will be EXALTED in Jerusalem, and there will be a Righteous Remnant of Israel to return for HIS GLORY!  Let us do what’s necessary to be numbered among them!

 

Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed. In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.”   Isaiah 45:22 – 25

 

At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart. In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.”   Jeremiah 3:17,18

 

Thus saith the LORD of hosts; It shall yet come to pass, that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities: And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts: I will go also. Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.”   Zechariah 8:20 – 23

 

What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.   Psalm 25:12

 

Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law; That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked. For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance. But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.   Psalm 94:12 - 15

 

It is time for the CREATOR GOD’s World Order to be established on HIS Earth, so that the Children of Israel will return to their place, so the meek will inherit the Earth, and so that the True GOD – the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob – will reign over all HIS Earthly Kingdom, the way HE intended in The BEGINNING.

 

***

 

I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return,

That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

Isaiah 45:23

 

The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house

shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills;

and all nations shall flow unto it.

And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,

to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways,

and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law,

and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people:

and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks:

 nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

Isaiah 2:1 – 4

 

For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden

causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth;

so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise

to spring forth before all the nations.

Isaiah 61:11

 

For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations

and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.

And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them

unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan,

to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory;

and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.

And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations

upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts,

to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD,

as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.

And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith the LORD.

For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me,

saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.

And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another,

and from one sabbath to another,

shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.

Isaiah 66:18 – 23

 

I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

A PRAYER EXTENDED OUT OF KING SOLOMON’S PRAYER FOR ISRAELITES WHO LIVE TODAY AND WHO ARE CAPTIVES IN GENTILE LANDS:

 

Dear Father of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, GOD and KING of this Universe, and CREATOR of ALL things,

 

We need your help – a spark to generate greater interest in YOU, your LAW, and a desire to return.  YOU cannot imagine the Messianics that are on the Internet.

 

I’m sure you look down at your People and wonder what’s wrong with them that they just can’t worship YOU and come together under your LAW, especially after all that has happened to us.  I wonder, also, Father.  We know your Truth and how YOU are so willing to give us your HELP, yet we still don’t care to be a League and ONE People with YOU in harmony.  Why, Father?  Is it your HAND that is keeping us apart?  And are you again separating and calling for Israelites to “Come on the LORD’s Side”, as YOU did in the Wilderness?  If so, Father, make your intentions known, so that those of us who really and truly FEAR YOU will stop playing games and get serious under the umbrella of your LAW in Righteousness.  It is too late for us to not be without a PLAN that will bring us closer to YOU.  Guide us, Father, and show us your HAND.  As you know, from our wicked past, that always worked – not for long, but even for just a short while, it might be helpful.  Help us, Father, and make us ONE Stick in your HAND!

 

***

 

This world of Peoples and Nations have been deceived, and yes it is greatly because of the sins, transgressions, and disobedience of your Chosen People, the Children of Israel.  YOU established our fathers with love in the Land YOU promised them.  YOU kept your every WORD.  The Children of Israel got the Land of Canaan and possessed it, and YOU even gave them a king, when in fact, YOU were (and still are) their KING.  With your Mighty HAND YOU kept them safe from their enemies but, at the same time, punished them at the hands of their enemies when they were disobedient to your Book of the Law and when they corrupted themselves with worship of false gods.  But because YOU are a Merciful GOD for not utterly destroying us in the Wilderness and for not keeping us in utter darkness in this GREAT CAPTIVITY throughout the world, YOU have clearly forgiven us AGAIN, and have heard our cries, just as you forgave and considered the prayers of our forefathers. 

 

Now, it has been well over 2,000 years since YOU scattered the Israelites and since YOU left to return to your Place and leave us in the hands of our enemies. 

 

Thus, Father, YOU know how the heathens have been heartlessly ruling over us and keeping us repressed and without any power and without self-determination.  Your Covenant People, the Children of Israel, are NOT SAVED – not the People and not the Land, which Europeans have usurped as their own and control with much cruelty and not at all according to your Book of the Law. 

 

Father, in the past, you have removed all peoples from your Land who have refused to live according to your Ways of Righteousness, so why then do you allow these Europeans to stay in your Land?   Neither do they Fear YOU to promote your Laws, Statutes and Judgments, but rather they boast of their own laws that they call “Judaism”.  And they even block your People who have returned to you from the Land that YOU gave to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  We are Witnesses and the Canaanites are Witnesses, as well that heathenish people and their heathenish ways will have no place in your Holy Land.  When, Father will YOU take action against those who falsely claim your Land?

 

Israelites have returned to YOU, Father, not all, because YOU did say that only a Remnant will return.  However, some of us fall asleep calling upon your Holy Name and praying daily and nightly for your compassion that YOU show your Mighty HAND for us, just as YOU did for our forefathers down in Egypt.  If for but ten Israelites who seek YOU in Truth, Father of Abraham, return to us, help us, and let us live to show forth your PRAISE and spread your Righteous LAW.  Return to us, Father, because we have returned to YOU.  We are the “Dry Bones” YOU have awakened to life – your LAWS of Truth and Righteousness.

 

Hear us, Father,

 

The world mourns, and it is not at rest.  Everything evil and everything wicked are destroying your planet Earth:  sickness, war, violence, deaths and murder, a plethora of man-made religions, corruption, and all manner of wickedness rule.  Father, we live in days 100 times worse than the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, and that speaks volumes, for YOU know all that takes place in the open and done in secret.  Iniquity rules, Father, because the Peoples and Nations of today do not know YOU to FEAR YOU – not even your Covenant People, the SEED of Jacob, for as YOU know too many Israelites yet worship other gods, even the gods of the heathen. 

 

YOU said that because of the sins of the Children of Israel that YOU would cause them to worship all the false gods they desire.  YOU told Israel to see if the gods they worship would help and save them.  Well, these gods have neither helped nor saved your People and no one else, either.  Israelites are not saved, and there is Hell on your Earth.  None of the hundreds of religions and their gods have been helpful or have done anything to change the evil and wickedness that prevails throughout the world.  Only YOU, Father of Abraham, can change the sin and blasphemous acts that exist in the hearts of today’s peoples.  Only YOU, Father, can establish your Truth and your Righteousness in place of what now destroys and deceives the world of peoples who have no knowledge of YOU – the ONE True and Living GOD.

 

Hear ME, My GOD and My SAVIOR of Israel; hear me for we are in great distress.

 

How will people know to seek YOU, Father, if YOU do not remove the veil from off hidden Truths?  How can people find YOU, if YOU keep your Ways of Righteousness hidden, and YOU allow false worship to rule instead of your Truth?  How can people’s eyes be opened, if YOU do not cause them to realize that their ways are really the ways of chaos and assured death?  How can people be saved, if evil, powerful rulers perpetuate their world orders that sustain confusion, division, isolation, turmoil, and mayhem, even with involvement of their religions?  How can Israel be saved, if YOU do not once again show your POWER and your Right HAND to Deliver YOUR People out of captivity and out of the lands of the enemy?  How will your Covenant People learn that the images and crosses around their necks are the works of men who wrote the “New Testament” specifically because they were against your LAWS and against your Righteous Judgments?  How will they know if YOU will not come forth to show them that what they believe is not of your making?  Because of Israel’s evils and wickedness, your world suffers, Father, and now, once again ONLY your POWERS, your SIGNS, and your WONDERS will cause Israelites and all mankind to FEAR YOU in order that you will be able to change this madness into your Ways of Righteousness.

 

Therefore, RETURN, Father, Most High GOD of this Universe, RETURN to your PLACE and re-establish your Covenant People for your Great Name’s Sake, and for your PRAISE and GLORY, make haste.  Reveal to the world that YOU ALONE are the ONE true and Living GOD, and that there is none else, for indeed, YOU speak of none other for YOU have said that YOU are a “JEALOUS GOD”.

 

Make haste, Father, and remember your PROMISES to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to cause their SEED to inherit the Land of Canaan.  And take us into the Wilderness, as YOU have said at the mouth of your Prophets, in order that we learn your LAWS and that YOU put them in our hearts so that we NEVER TURN FROM YOU, EVER AGAIN!

 

Make haste, Father, so that you will once again live in the midst of your People, the Children of Israel.

 

Hear my prayer, O GOD of Israel, for it is in YOU that I trust with all my whole heart and soul. 

 

As YOU said, “Come now, and let us reason together…though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”  The Remnant awaits YOU, Heavenly GOD of Israel.

 

Be with us, Father, in the coming months, for some of us are preparing a PLAN to go in the midst of the rulers of this world to seek our FREEDOM out of this captivity.  It is our prayer that YOU will be with us, LORD GOD of Jacob, just as YOU were with our forebears when YOU made yourself known to the Egyptians, so that they would let Israel go out of that House of Bondage. 

 

Show us and the world, Heavenly Father, that your Heart is turned toward your People, Israel, AGAIN and that YOU will again cause our captors to know that our lives and theirs, as well are in your HANDS and that YOU still live for your Covenant People, the SEED of the Biblical Israelites to save us out of their captivity.

 

Show your People, Israel, that YOU are indeed in accord with this Plan, and that YOU will surely save us out of this captivity and AGAIN make a GREAT and AWESOME NAME for yourself, so that all mankind will know to FEAR YOU AND KEEP YOUR WAYS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!

 

For a long time, Father, YOU have been an unknown and without PRAISE and GLORY, but now, that can all be changed.  Now, GOD of Abraham, be EXALTED and be MAGNIFIED, and soon, after we come out of the Wilderness, let the Nation of Israel get the attention of the world with trumpets as we boast of your GREATNESS and your Ways of RIGHTEOUSNESS from your Holy City Jerusalem.

 

Let it happen, O Shepherd of Israel, let it happen for your Holy Name’s Sake.  If not, then, Father, what will YOU do unto your great name?

 

“…God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.”

 

Yes, Father, your Holy Name is ours, too, for we are named by YOU.  Save us, O GOD of our SALVATION, and show the world once again that the GOD of Israel yet lives and is taking back HIS Universe, HIS Land, and HIS Holy City, Jerusalem, and that YOU will be Exalted above all gods upon this Earth.

 

Make haste, Father of Abraham, and let it happen – make it happen now for your Holy Name’s Sake and for your Righteousness’ Sake!

THE SOAPBOX THAT SPEAKS:

 

REVOLUTION IS THE NAME OF THE GAME

 

It was one tired Black lady riding a bus home from work who refused to give up her seat to a White person that started the Civil Rights Movement.  She was Rosa Parks.  It was a young street vendor pushing his wares in Tunisia trying to make an honest living who started the sparks that spread from Tunisia to Egypt to Libya and other countries.  His name was M9hamed Bouagizi.  He set himself afire because of constant police harassment and confiscation of his property.  Bouagizi is dead now, but little did anyone know that he would set off a revolution that has spread across many countries and one that could be instrumental in bringing the powers-that-be to their knees. 

 

If the US, Britain, and other European nations have not poured billions into these countries, whose peoples are revolting against their governments’ oppressive regimes, then they have invested billions in them one way or another.  For example, it is a fact that Egypt received $1.5 - 2 billion every year from the United States.  The peoples involved in these revolutions want a change and could not be more grateful to Bouagizi for the wheel he has set in motion, just as Blacks could not be more appreciative of the courage Rosa Parks demonstrated when she expressed her human right. 

 

WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND

 

The ways of the powers-that-be who run this world order have finally caught up with them.  The seeds of change have been planted and the CREATOR GOD of Israel has made HIS MOVE!  Yes, there is a caring and compassionate GOD that considers the impoverished, the oppressed, and the suppressed.  The tentacles of wicked oppressors are spread across the globe, and the CREATOR is bringing their exploitation, manipulation, and control to an end.

 

I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, andconsider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.

Isaiah 14:14 – 18

 

“…thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people:

the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.

Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise,

nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.

For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name,

and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD.

I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water:

and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the LORD of hosts.

Isaiah 14:20 - 23

MARK?

WHAT MARK?

 

Does your forehead bear GOD’s Mark?  If it doesn’t, then you might have good reason to worry.  If history repeats itself, then we will want GOD’s Mark in our foreheads because this Mark speaks volumes and could save your life.  It pays to read our Hebrew Scriptures!

THE SMOKESCREEN

 

We can assume the Universe was established by a “Big Bang,” or we can seek a more intelligent theory.

 

The more intelligent reasoning is that a Supreme Being did in fact Create the Heavens, Earth, and all things therein.  Then the issue becomes, “Did this Supreme Being intend for HIS CREATION to exist in such a chaotic state of absolute Hell, as it is now?”  If not, then it is incumbent upon us to seek answers for the present horrific state of affairs in the Land of Israel and the rest of the Middle East that is capable of spreading to other countries even to the United States.

 

It is not likely that this Supreme Being did not advise the people of HIS Creation IN THE BEGINNING of how to live in goodness and in peace with each other, which certainly entailed how to worship HIM for giving them life.  For there not to exist harmony and happiness on this Earth, it is evident that from the looks of things and from the ever-present catastrophic events taking place on Earth, this Supreme Being is furious with the peoples HE Created.

 

This is where we are now.  The CREATOR is Judging the peoples of HIS Creation and is taking back HIS Universe.

 

History proves that Jerusalem is the Holy City of the GOD of Israel, that the Israelites are HIS Chosen, Covenant People, and that the Land of Israel belongs to HIM, as well.  So, why all the attention given to this area of the world that is proving to be the catalyst leading to the end of this present world system?

 

The Palestinians have been in the land since the reign of King Saul, and the European Israelis have been a State since 1948, opening their doors to other converted Europeans and whomsoever else wishing to take part in this Talmudic process and live off the fat of GOD’s Holy Land.  The Palestinians and the Israelis have been at war ever since.  If these two groups can live together anywhere in the world except in Israel, then there must be a very good reason why.  However, the reason is not one that Israelis desire to make public.  Israeli hatred of the Arabs is not at all the issue.  There exists a more profound reason than that.  Finger pointing at the Arabs is but the ubiquitous smokescreen presented to the world.

 

THE TRUTH ABOUT CONVERSION TO SO-CALLED “JUDAISM”

 

The world should connect the dots and learn the truth regarding the Europeans who control GOD’s Holy Land.  There is no way the GOD of Israel will accept a conversion process that changes Europeans, Americans, and Middle Easterners into “Jews.”  GOD’s Covenant is with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their SEED.  Accordingly, how can we dismiss the fact that Abraham was called out of Ur of the Chaldeans – NOT out of Europe.  GOD well knows HIS Chosen People, no matter that HE took their identity from them and cast them from HIS Land.

 

And their being scattered into the “Four Corners of the Earth” to serve their enemies has everything to do with the problems in the Middle East, as this crisis relates to the CREATOR GOD taking back HIS Universe, HIS Holy Land, HIS Holy City, and HIS Chosen People.  The Israelis know this.  They see the handwriting on the wall, but they are fighting the CREATOR GOD tooth and nail.  That’s what this war is all about - Israeli control - to keep out the SEED of Jacob whom GOD is calling home.  Hence, the Israelis, even if time permitted, would not give the Palestinians their State for fear the Israelites would seek to live there also.  And just for the record, one can learn about the true identity of the descendants of Jacob by reading what the CREATOR GOD of Israel said would befall them in Leviticus 26th and Deuteronomy 28th Chapters.

 

The Israelis have a rabid requirement to control all the Land of Israel including the Palestinian territories for one reason and for one reason only, which has everything to do with their “Law of Return.”  The Israelis and their Rabbinute (their religious party) are ever aware that the CREATOR GOD of Israel has a Covenant People – The Twelve Tribes of Jacob, and they know that according to Biblical Prophecy the CREATOR GOD of the Land of Israel and this Universe will restore HIS Chosen People to their heritage.  For obvious reasons, in no way do the Israelis (European converts to what’s called “Judaism,” which is of their own making) want this to happen, for then they will no longer have control of the Land of Israel at all.  However, they know their days are numbered.

 

“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I have lifted up mine hand, Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame. But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come. For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown: And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded:”  

Ezekiel 36:7 – 10

 

Now, the Truth is out.  This is the reason for the decades of turmoil, death, and destruction over GOD’s Holy Land.  And of a Truth, the Israeli powers-that-be have no qualms about their dilemma.  They are prepared to fight to the end, but who are they really fighting?  It all has to do with what prophecy foretells, and what must be fulfilled.

 

Conversely, Israelis are putting too much false hope in their military powers.  When it comes to the Children of Israel, the CREATOR GOD fights their battles, and since it is time for their return, there is nothing Israeli’ weaponry can do to stop GOD’s Commandment from manifesting.

 

The Israelites were formed to show forth GOD’s Praise and to be a light to the world for HIS Ways of Righteousness – HIS Book of the Law (the teachings of the Prophet Moses – NOT the Talmud compiled by European “Jews”). 

 

“Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;”  

Isaiah 42:5,6

 

“This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.”  Isaiah 43:21

 

And it is for this reason the Supreme Being, or rather the CREATOR GOD of Israel is taking back HIS magnificent Universe and making it a place of Divine Peace, one that Exalts and Magnifies HIM for all HIS Wondrous Works.

 

The CREATOR GOD has held HIS Peace for a very long time, all because of the curses HE put on HIS Chosen People for forsaking HIM for false gods and for rejecting HIS LAW.  Their rebellion caused GOD to cast HIS People into the hands of the heathen, and HE went into seclusion permitting Gentiles to run the world and teach HIS People a lesson that would send them running back to HIM seeking forgiveness with contrite spirits.

 

“I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.”   Isaiah 42:14

 

For a long time people believed that the European “Jews” were really the people of the Bible, but the CREATOR knows HIS Chosen People, the SEED of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the men with whom HE made an Everlasting Covenant  (Genesis 17:1 – 21). 

 

From the Slave Trade to world hatred, and enduring racism and discrimination all over the world, Blacks have suffered at the hands of those who ruled over them.  But now, the CREATOR GOD of Israel is awakening the Dry Bones and calling HIS People home to the chagrin and utter dismay of European Israelis who are helpless to do anything about it but who still have plans to thwart the WORD of GOD.  Trust me, their efforts will not end in victory, and nothing since 1948 has even given them hope that they could take the place of the SEED of Jacob/Israel (Genesis 32:28) – neither by conversion nor submersion. 

 

Thus, the reasons for the war for Israeli control of GOD’s Land and the reasons for a world of troubled times, disasters, endless suffering, despair, and many, many tears.

 

The CREATOR is taking back HIS Universe and keeping HIS Everlasting Promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the Patriarchs of the Nation of Israel

 

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.”   Isaiah 10:20 - 22

 

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.”   Isaiah 11:11

 

“And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.”   Ezekiel 36:27

 

“For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.”   Isaiah 66:22

 

“Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob's tents, and have mercy on his dwellingplaces; and the city shall be builded upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof. And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small. Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them. And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the LORD.”  

Jeremiah 30:18 – 21

 

“At the same time, saith the LORD, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people. Thus saith the LORD, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest. The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee. Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry. Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things. For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God. For thus saith the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O LORD, save thy people, the remnant of Israel. Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither. They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn. Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock. For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he. Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all. Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.”   Jeremiah 31:1 – 13

 

“The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.”   Zephaniah 3:13

 

“Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.”   Zephaniah 3:19

 

And for all HIS Creations, especially man, the ONE CREATOR GOD of Israel will be acknowledged and worshipped by HIS Chosen People and all Nations remaining from HIS Wrath and destruction of the wicked.  The Peoples of this world will revolve around its MAKER!

 

Yes, the All-Mighty CREATOR will liberate HIS Holy Land and will return to HIS Holy City Jerusalem, where once again HIS Holy Priests will minister before HIM and where people of all Nations will visit to Bless HIM for HIS GOODNESS and for HIS Holy Name’s Sake.

 

“And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.”   Isaiah 66:23

 

“And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.”   Zechariah 14:16

 

FINALLY:

 

“Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD's anger.”   Zephaniah 2:3

 

WHAT IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE CREATOR GOD?

 

“And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.”   Deuteronomy 6:25

 

“When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing. Gather the people together, men and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law: And that their children, which have not known any thing, may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.”   Deuteronomy 31:11 - 13

 

The fulfillment of the above passage is just a matter of time.

WE WANT ANSWERS, BUT CAN WE HANDLE THE TRUTH?

 

What in the world is happening?

 

As people watch and experience frightening and disastrous floods, killer storms, Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, destructive fires, famine, and incurable diseases, they can only ask, “Will my loved ones and I be spared?”

 

As people sit in churches and temples, they wonder, “Why aren’t my prayers being answered?”  And “Who can I trust to spiritually guide me?”

 

As people raise their children, they wonder, “How can I explain the reasons why GOD does not end hunger, impoverishment, race hatred, unhappiness, ubiquitous catastrophes, and bring peace to this Earth?”

 

And “Why would GOD hand HIS Earth over to the heathens?”

 

The ANSWERS to all these questions and many, many more can be found in “The Old Testament.”

In that this book details new revelations and unconventional perspectives about Christianity and so-called “Judaism” (unrelated to the LAW GOD gave to Moses), would you be so inclined to consider the answers and solutions written therein?

 

At a time when people fear for their lives because of the many disasters and the growing possibilities of a nuclear war, it is time to seek explanations that make sense.  Therefore, read the WORD OF GOD that has been hidden for millennia in order that the reign of the heathen may be fulfilled.  Read THUS SAITH THE LORD for knowledge and understanding, as all the world watches GOD’s WONDROUS WORKS unfold bringing an end to the corruption and evils that fill the Earth HE CREATED!

 

IT IS GOD’s TURN NOW!

WATCH

AND

CAUSES ALL TO KNOW HIM AND HIS TRUTH!

 

THE CREATOR GOD WILL BE EXALTED AND

When a child, I said I would kill whoever killed GOD.

Now, an adult, I know that no one can kill the True and Living CREATOR GOD

but rather must serve, worship, and magnify ONLY HIM or pay dire consequences, and

[I am too pleased to add the following list of more enlightening books presented by our dear Sister Naami baht Lewi.  By all means, please indulge and be the wiser. T.Y., Editor] 

 

1. Breaking the Chains of Psychological Slavery by Na'im Akbar (a very short book, but it's chock full of good, good stuff);

 

2. Africans and Their History by Dr. Joseph E. Harris (the book is not a big book either and there's even a paperback edition. Yet, it is one of the most comprehensive and easy-to-follow books on Africa that I've read);

3. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome by Dr. Joy Learey (in my opinion, this sister, even without an Israelite perspective, has produced the definitive work on explaining some of our behaviors, thought patterns, etc. She also offers some practical solutions that can be adopted and are even more applicable because we know the origin of our pathological behavior);

 

4. Capitalism and Slavery by Eric Williams (even though Dr. Williams speaks mainly about West Indian slavery, he offers a comprehensive perspective as to why we should not embrace our oppressors - particularly when we understand what they have done to us and their mindset on the whole institution).

 

5. Holy Land, Whose Land?: Modern Dilemma, Ancient Roots by Dorothy Drummond (she offers an interesting perspective on the question and she offers both the scientific and historical explanations as to why this is so);

 

6. The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets by Barbara G. Walker. This is a great reference book for explaining many of the pagan origins of beliefs, practices, etc.

 

7. The Penguin Dictionary of Religions, edited by John R. Hinnells;

 

8. The Penguin Dictionary of Symbols, by Jean Chevalier and Alain Gheerbrant;
Both of these reference books offer a wealth of information as to the origin or certain religious beliefs, how these beliefs were founded, and how various symbols are derived from paganism, etc.

 

9. Anything by the late Dr. Amos N. Wilson, particularly the following: The Developmental Psychology of the Black Child; Awakening the Natural Genius of Black Children; & The Falsification of Afrikan Consciousness.

 

NOTE: Dr. Wilson was an inspired, if sometimes soporific lecturer, although his lectures were mainly delivered in the vernacular of the common man. His books are written is some common language that is easily comprehensible, while also including language that may be difficult for some to follow (i.e., written in academic language). However, folks who are good and/or avid readers will gain a lot from his work.

 

10. The Hidden History of New York: A guide for Black Folks by Tingba Apidta, the 3rd in a series of The Reclamation Project, Boston, MA. (This book is for those who mistakenly believe that slavery and Jim Crow were Southern U.S. phenomena.)

12. *The Jew and the Christian Missionary: A Jewish Response to Missionary Christianity" by Gerald Segal, KTAV Publishing House, Inc., NY, 1981.

*Please note that this book may be completely out of print. When I ordered mine on amazon.com a few years ago, (The Strand and other out-of-print publishers did not have a copy) it cost me $53 (other copies were being sold for as high as $250!). A congregation might want to track this publication down and pay for a copy and then distribute without charge, copies of sections, citing the source, of course. This way, they don't infringe on copyright laws. It is one of those remarkable books that once acquired, you don't let out of your possession.

A SPECIAL REPORT ON THE “KOY”

 

TAKE DILIGENT HEED…

 

“…take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law,

which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments,

and to cleave unto him,

and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

Joshua 22:5

June 19, 2006

 

What exactly does the GOD of Israel mean when HE Commands us to take diligent heed to do HIS Commandments and HIS LAW? 

 

IN THAT…

 

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”   Deuteronomy 30:19,20

 

AND…

 

“And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.”   Deuteronomy 32:46,47

 

I would think that to take diligent heed means to be extremely cautious to keep GOD’s LAW, read and study it, DO IT, and pray to the GOD of Israel for wisdom to understand it.  And in addition to that common sense would be to either join with others so determined or be alone in returning back to the Holy ONE and what’s required of the SEED of Jacob.

 

This might seem ever so trivial a detail to some, but it means a world to the GOD of Israel.  You see, I used to belong to Ben Ammi’s group, and I left for many reasons, but mainly because he was allowing people to call him JC and “Saviour” and because he was not concerned about GOD’s LAW and much less about taking heed to live and do it. 

 

What truly, truly disturbs me is that there are people encouraging Israelites to join up with Ben Ammi and accept his title – “Messianic Leader,” as well as the blasphemous notion that the True and Living GOD would have such a congregation to represent HIM.  Yes, of course the so-called “KOY” exists, but it does not represent the GOD of Israel and HIS LAW, i.e., HIS Ways of Righteousness that HE Commanded of the Prophet Moses to teach to the Nation of Israel.  This group does not in any way signify the Kingdom of YAH, and indeed it cannot in any way portray GOD’s Righteous Kingdom

 

The “KOY” is a congregation of people calling themselves Israelites and living according to the Laws of Ben Ammi and the imaginations of his contrary and devious heart.  The wise in the knowledge of Truth know that Ben Ammi’s camp, built on corruption, crime, lust, adultery, and death, cannot in any way be connected with the Holy ONE of Israel’s Divine and Righteous Kingdom or cannot be established to receive the Remnant GOD said would return. 

 

“The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.”   Jeremiah 23:20 – 22

 

“My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.”   Jeremiah 50:6

 

Moreover, King David’s Seed will head the CREATOR GOD’s Righteous Kingdom that will exist upon this Earth, and he will know to be the perfect role model for living GOD’s LAW in Righteousness. 

 

I have never read where Kings David and Solomon called themselves “Messiah.”

 

“And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.”   Isaiah 11:1 – 5

 

“And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.”   Isaiah 11:10

 

And this Righteous Kingdom will be all about serving, worshipping, and PRAISING the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and about representing HIM and spreading HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments throughout this world, in order that the CREATOR GOD of Israel will be Magnified and will receive all the Praise and all the Glory, so that people will abandon the “New Testament” and its theology.  Have no doubts about it, the son of David will rule from Jerusalem and the GOD of Heaven and Earth will rule over all (Psalm 103:19). 

 

I find nothing in GOD’s WORD to support an existence of HIS Kingdom in Israel under the control of Gentile Jews.  Ben Ammi has deceived hundreds into believing this lie that he is the Messianic leader of GOD’s Kingdom.  How long are we going to follow leaders who use GOD’s Holy Name in vain?! 

 

Taking heed to keep GOD’s LAW would entail staying as far from Ben Ammi as possible.  And the fact that HE keeps his stores open on GOD’s Holy Day of Complete REST is a darn good red flag and eye-opener that shouts to stay away from this leader, as of a Truth, he does not FEAR the GOD of Israel to do HIS Will.  And what better information exists from Our GOD to prove Ben Ammi to be one who defies the All-Mighty GOD!

 

“To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”   Isaiah 8:20

 

This passage is the best gauge Israelites have for determining and for understanding who to accept as a genuine leader or know who FEARS the Holy ONE of Israel.  If Ben Ammi and the people of his camp defy the Most High GOD of Israel, then why join with them, and why take part in their beliefs unfounded in GOD’s LAW and in their disobedience?

 

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”   Psalm 1:1,2

 

“I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.”   Psalm 26:5

 

“If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:”   Psalm 66:18

 

“Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.”   Psalm 141:4

 

“Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.”   Isaiah 1:2 - 4

 

Another perfect incident that serves to explain why we cannot join with people who break GOD’s LAW concerns Jehoshaphat and Ahziah.  And does it ever speak VOLUMES!

 

“And after this did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, who did very wickedly: And he joined himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish: and they made the ships in Eziongaber. Then Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, Because thou hast joined thyself with Ahaziah, the LORD hath broken thy works. And the ships were broken, that they were not able to go to Tarshish.”   II Chronicles 20:35 – 37

 

Let’s not pretend we don’t know about our past and how our stiffnecked and rebellious forebears loved to be connected with evildoers and how they encouraged the lawful to follow wickedness.  At least admit to what THUS SAITH THE LORD!

 

At this late day and in the time of Jacob’s Trouble, why would we even consider joining with Ben Ammi or with anyone or with any congregation that does not make GOD’s LAW the Paths of Righteousness to follow and walk?  Our GOD of Israel promises us that if we return to HIM and HIS LAW, that then we can return to our heritage (Deuteronomy 30:1-4).  If people will join with Ben Ammi, then for them GOD’s Promise is made void.

 

“And ye shall know that I am the LORD: for ye have not walked in my statutes, neither executed my judgments, but have done after the manners of the heathen that are round about you.”   Ezekiel 11:12

 

“Why criest thou for thine affliction? thy sorrow is incurable for the multitude of thine iniquity: because thy sins were increased, I have done these things unto thee.”   Jeremiah 30:15

 

“And hast given them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey; And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them:”  Jeremiah 32:22,23

 

What a crime!  Ben Ammi was among the blessed to return, but just like his rebellious forefathers, he, too, refuses to be obedient to the LAWS of the GOD of Israel.

 

The WORD of the GOD of Israel also condemns Ben Ammi for calling himself a “Messianic Leader” in order to gather Israelites and Christians into his fold.  But in no way does he emulate the “Old Testament” men of GOD!

 

Was Moses, Joshua, Samuel, the kings of Israel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, or any of the other Prophets who promoted GOD’s Book of the Law and who spoke “THUS SAITH THE LORD” called a Messiah?  Do we need this?  Is this something required of us to have before us?

 

I listened to a Brother in Paltalk Chat go to extremes to contrive a justifiable explanation for Ben Ammi calling himself a Messiah.  The Truth of the matter is that this word is not even connected with Hebrew-Israelite Culture.  “Jews” and Christians and the Book of Daniel and the “New Testament” are very much associated with the word “Messiah,” but not the Israelites who wandered forty years in the Wilderness and inhabited the Land of Israel.  And if Moses was NOT given this C.E. terminology to introduce to the Children of Israel, then there is no reason for us to know about it at all.  There isn’t even ANY information in this Book of Daniel or in the “New Testament” that is essential for Israelites to know and do – none at all.  All that the GOD of Israel required of us to know and do was given to HIS Servant Moses and is reiterated in the books of HIS Prophets who utter “THUS SAITH THE LORD.”  There is no “THUS SIAITH THE LORD” in the Book of Daniel or in the “New Testament.”  Both of these books were written AFTER GOD scattered HIS Chosen People, Israel, from the land.  That being the case, this literature is suspect, and proof of this is the fact that the Israelites were scattered to live in “Darkness” and to serve their enemies.  So, why would the Holy ONE give them any information about seventy weeks or seventy years or seventy anything? 

 

And even if this information is for a time after the Israelites return, the information still makes no sense.  “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week…” (Daniel 9:27).  This verse contradicts what “THUS SAITH THE LORD” about HIS Covenant in Jeremiah 31:31 – 34 and in Ezekiel 20:37.  And not one of GOD’s Prophets makes mention of this event in the Book of Daniel. 

 

Just for the record, “THUS SAITH THE LORD” is mentioned more than 400 times in the “Old Testament” but not even once in the Book of Daniel or in the “New Testament.”  That’s no mistake.  That’s for us to think logically and connect the dots!  Therefore, when we do the research concerning the year the Book of Daniel was probably written, we will see that this Book of Daniel and the “New Testament” were written to deceive Israelites, and, thus, we have no reason to accept the information in either of these books as being GOD’s WORD. 

 

GOD’s Covenants – HIS LAW and HIS Promises, as well as the “New Covenant” spoken of in Jeremiah 31:31-34 - will resume upon our return to our heritage.  And there is no other WORD of GOD to have us believe that any one of these Covenants will be one week.  Actually, when you consider what’s written in Daniel 9:27, none of this chapter makes any sense whatsoever.

 

“He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac; And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:”   Psalm 105:8 – 10

 

“Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry: And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.”   Psalm 106:44,45

 

The Holy ONE of Israel has not only remembered HIS Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, but HE has opened our eyes to the fact that WE ARE HIS PEOPLE, but unfortunately, too many of us do not choose to do that which is necessary to stay in HIS good graces.

 

Another serious issue is that certain people credit Ben Ammi with moving Israelites to Liberia and then on to Israel.  The GOD of Israel did not say that Ben Ammi would deliver HIS People.  HE said that HE would, and when HE does, for sure HE wants all the GLORY, every whit!  HE got all the GLORY in the Israelite Deliverance out of Egypt, and HE, unequivocally, will be Exalted AGAIN upon the return of the Remnant of Israel that GOD promises HE WILL GATHER.  To suggest or even think for a moment that Ben Ammi deserves recognition for that which is due to the Holy ONE of Israel leads me to believe that some of us, being Israelites, have truly lost sight of what’s important to know and understand.  It would appear that the Holy ONE is again proving Israelites to determine who will and who will not enter into HIS Glorious Kingdom.

 

And just because people think Ben Ammi to be prosperous and have more than other congregations is no reason to boast about the advancements he has made.  When I hear this, I am constantly reminded of the “green bay tree” in Psalms.

 

“Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.”   Psalm 37:1 – 3

 

“I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found. Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.”   Psalm 37:35 - 37

 

“They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:”   Psalm 49:6,7

 

“Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.”   Psalm 127:1

 

It would appear that people don’t yet get the full understanding of the above verse that is loaded with Truth, conviction, and certainty.  Time proves everything!  The Flood of Noah’s Day and the scattering of the Nation of Israel into the Four Corners of the Earth are proven facts that the CREATOR GOD of Israel does not tolerate people taking HIS Name in vain, disobedience of HIS LAW, and the worship of false gods and even of man.

 

Ben Ammi is not “perfect.”  He, himself, said in 1996 that he is doing 60%.  Thus, he isn’t even close to being “the perfect man.”  He is failing and falling fast!  His works and teachings speak volumes.  We have history to probe for what “THUS SAITH THE LORD” and for what required of us.  AND we have read what has happened to Israelites who stray from GOD’s LAW in order to establish their own direction.  We have book after book in the “Old Testament” that gives us all the information we need concerning rebellious Israelites.  We know what the GOD of Israel did to them, and we know that HE has not changed HIS Ordinances one iota, and that HE will NEVER change them.  Hence, knowing all this, and knowing what the GOD of Moses has said about HIS LAW and the consequences for not keeping it (in Deuteronomy 28th Chapter), knowing that HE will MAGNIFY HIS LAW and put it in our hearts, knowing that we were scattered for not observing this Divine LAW, would Our GOD of Israel send such a leader as Ben Ammi who has no regard for HIS LAW but rather for magnifying himself and a bogus “KOY”?  Perfect men of GOD do not grandstand and promote adverse teachings.  They vehemently stress doing the WORD of the GOD of Israel and with “ONE” mindset. 

 

Without question, “the perfect man” FEARS the GOD of Israel to live and do HIS Book of the Law.  It is accepting GOD’s Righteousness and to live by it that is our ticket into the CREATOR GOD of Israel’s Peaceful Kingdom.  It is not Ben Ammi’s veggie and no-salt diets.  Ben Ammi is not concerned about GOD’s LAW, and neither is the GOD of Israel in his thoughts.  This “KOY” in Dimona is really nothing more than the Kingdom of Ben Ammi, and he is no more the “Saviour” that he is called than is the jc of the “New Testament.”  Ben Ammi and the other leaders in his Camp know exactly how to run their game, and those who they beguile either know nothing of the GOD of Israel and HIS LAW, or they have chosen to forget the GOD of Israel and HIS LAW and listen to and believe in a man whose foundation is built on lies, corruption, and death.  Therefore, I caution everyone to be very cautious of what is believed, and the reason is that if we CHOOSE to believe in wickedness, then GOD will help to encourage that false belief.

 

“Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.”  

Jeremiah 6:19

 

“Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin.”   Hosea 8:11

 

What wills Israelites to turn from the WORD of GOD?  What force is there that can make GOD’s Chosen People defy HIM?  Never mind.  I don’t think I want to know.  In any case, those who join with Ben Ammi should know that you give up your assets and you are expected to conform to the expectations of the Camp, and you will adhere to WILL adhere to their ways or be punished by beatings and losing your flamboyant “title.”  What a scam, the best since the advent of Christianity.  However, only the Holy ONE will prove them a fraud and with the Righteous Remnant HE is calling – HIS Chosen Ones who have determined to serve and worship ONLY HIM.

 

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.”   Joel 2:32

 

“For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.”   Psalm 10:3,4

 

“My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.”   Psalm 34:2,3

 

“In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.”   Psalm 44:8

 

Is this a time for us to boast?  Ben Ammi is subject to the will of Gentile Jews.  Why is he boasting, and why are others boasting for him?  Is this not a time to turn to the Most High GOD of Israel and boast of HIM and seek HIM for understanding IN HIS LAW and in HIS WORD to HIS Prophets?  Should we not thirst and hunger for GOD’s Truth?

 

“All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers. And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.”   Deuteronomy 8:3

 

Ezekiel speaks about the Holy ONE of Israel gathering us and taking us into a SECOND WILDERNESS.  If Ben Ammi, or anyone for that matter, does not observe GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of Complete REST, as it is written, will he not be purged, as the GOD of Israel has said?  Can it really be that the CREATOR GOD of the Heavens and the Earth will allow Ben Ammi and his Camp to fast on HIS Holy Day and have his restaurants open defying HIS Commandment?  Come on, People!  Who is fooling whom?

 

“And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out. And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face. Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord GOD. And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant: And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.”   Ezekiel 20:34 – 38

 

Ironically, from this passage, Ben Ammi will not enter into the very Kingdom he boasts. 

 

“And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of their's, lest ye be consumed in all their sins.”   Numbers 16:26

 

“I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.”   Psalm 26:5

 

Surely, we know about Israelites who speak of the Holy ONE of Israel with their lips but have hearts far from HIM.  This is the case with all Israel who acknowledge the Holy ONE of Israel but DO NOT live by HIS Book of the Law, as it is written.

 

“Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.”   Isaiah 59:2

 

Some of us might think it is all right to join with congregations that defy GOD’s LAW, but this is wholly against doing what Thus Saith the LORD.  The Holy ONE of Israel is not impressed with the direction some of us have taken.  First of all, we do not need leaders.  Our Merciful GOD has brought us out of darkness in revealing to us our true identity and has made us know that we are more than just descendants of Slaves. HE did this because of HIS Promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and because we are HIS Chosen People.  Wake up, Israel!  We need Our GOD, the Holy ONE of Israel.  We can call upon HIM for direction, wisdom, and understanding.  That’s why HE is Our GOD.  HE does not tell us to call upon HIM for naught.  HE did not say trust not in a friend for naught.  HE did not say that those who follow after evil leaders will be destroyed for naught (Isaiah 9:16).  Our GOD has always wanted to be the center of our lives and of our world.  And if we are obedient and will devote our lives to HIM, HE will be our LEADER, and for choosing HIM, we will not thirst or want for any good thing.  And at the designated time, HE promises to send us HIS Pastors.  But until then, trust in ONLY Our GOD of Israel and see HIS miraculous WORKS for those HE loves!

 

People have come forward with information on Ben Ammi, and the Brother promoting the so-called “Keys to the Kingdom” is aware of this.  I have also posted information on Ben Ammi and his camp to the LawKeepers Forum.  And if people will still join with him, after learning about this useless kingdom, then they certainly have no one but themselves to blame for whatever might befall them.   More importantly, those who will read this Message and will still seek to join and be associated with the Ben Ammi Camp can’t say they didn’t know and certainly won’t be able to plead ignorance.  They can’t say their leaders are at fault.  They can’t say they believed in a Brother whom they thought knew what he was talking about with some “Keys to the Kingdom.”  And the reason they cannot feign all these excuses is because all GOD’s warnings and counsel are written in HIS LAW and in HIS WORD to HIS Prophets. “TAKE DILIGENT HEED…” Also, HE provides knowledge to those who earnestly seek it.  The Holy ONE of Israel is a Most Merciful GOD and SAVIOR and has covered ALL bases, and HE has left out nothing of significance for us to know and do.  Our GOD of Israel has even left us with HIS WORD and good reason why we should not trust in man.

 

“Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:”   Psalm 146:3 - 6

 

“Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.”   Micah 7:5

 

I feel like this:  If I am going to fall by the wayside, it will not be because of following some stiffnecked, grandstanding, rebellious Israelite leaders.  In that respect, I have learned what not to do very well and mainly from watching lawless Israelites in Ben Ammi’s Camp and listening to him speak the imaginations of his heart.

 

The Dry Bones have a chance to live and serve and worship the Holy ONE of Israel, but only if we will return to HIM (not to Ben Ammi) to FEAR ONLY HIM and be obedient to the Ways of the CREATOR GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  It has been more than 2,500 years since we lost our heritage.  And the only way we will return to it is by looking to our SAVIOR, Our ONLY HELP. 

 

With Ben Ammi there is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD Our GOD to help us if we will only let HIM.  But we must take diligent heed to follow HIS Paths of Righteousness.  May Our Holy ONE of Israel bless the man courageous enough to speak HIS Truth and stand up for HIS LAW, the ONLY True Path of Righteousness.

 

“Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.”   Psalm 33:18 – 21

 

“Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.”   Psalm 60:11,12

 

“Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.”   Psalm 124:8

 

Wake up, Israel.  It is a fact that Ben Ammi does not live by GOD’s LAW.  This we know!  And since he doesn’t, the so-called KOY, under the leadership of Ben Ammi is just another Messianic congregation in deep trouble with the GOD of Israel.  As for me, I shall serve the Most High GOD of Israel and strive to be perfect in HIS LAW.  And all those who FEAR the GOD of Israel will do likewise.  Going home in no way entails joining Ben Ammi’s congregation, and if this is what you believe, then you are greatly deceived. 

 

“In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the LORD their God.”   Jeremiah 50:4

 

“O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the LORD straitened? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?”  

Micah 2:7

 

“And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and HE WILL TEACH US OF HIS WAYS, and we will walk in his paths: for THE LAW SHALL GO FORTH OF ZION, AND THE WORD OF THE LORD FROM JERUSALEM.”   Micah 4:2  (Caps. are mine.)

 

WAKE UP, ISRAEL!  Our GOD is calling us, and HE is being very selective.  HE is only taking Israelites who will vow themselves to HIM and to HIS LAW.  For that reason, there will only be a “Remnant” to make it to GOD’s Kingdom – only a Remnant.

 

“But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him. Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.”   Psalm 4:3 - 5 

 

So, be aware, and TAKE DILIGENT HEED.  This is our last shot to be returned to our heritage. 

 

“The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.”   Ezekiel 18:20 - 24

 

Thus, it is most critical that GOD FEARING Israelites discern right from wrong and denounce defiance and disobedience to GOD’s LAW.  

 

“But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children; To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.”   Psalm 103:17,18

 

And at the same time we must embrace wisdom and knowledge and abide by it.  Don’t waste precious time on a NOTORIOUS leader who has no respect for the “SIGN” of GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of REST that binds us with Our GOD of Israel.  The last thing Israelites who seek the GOD of Israel need is to hear a philosophy inconsistent with that of GOD’s Book of the Law.

 

What a shame to have people’s stomachs growling from their hunger pains and incessantly thinking of what they will eat when the Sabbath is ended, rather than thinking about the Mercies of the SAVIOR GOD of Israel and giving Glory to HIM for giving us a Blessed Day of REST.  How do I know all this?  I’ve been there and done that!  What a shame to have people not enjoying food on GOD’s Seventh Day Sabbath and their giving in to blessed slumber and rest on full stomachs.  WHAT A SHAME!  Ben Ammi forgets that this Seventh Day is the CREATOR’s Anniversary, and it is HE that has COMMANDED, how HE wants it observed.  To his hurt, Ben Ammi does not see it that way.

 

Those who decline from GOD’s Ways of Righteousness can expect to literally go mad and die.  This is GOD’s WORD – not mine!  Ben Ammi initially taught GOD’s LAW and as far as I knew abided by it.  Actually, this was the reason I joined “Abeta Israel,” the Israelite congregation in which he was a member.  But he allowed a former Christian preacher who joined his group to entice him to be the “Messiah” and “Saviour” of the Nation of Israel.  By the way, his congregation does for sure call him “Lord and Saviour.”  I have heard a woman make reference to him as being that, and Asiel, the so-called “KOY” Ambassador confirms that Ben Ammi saved him.  He made this statement in the Paltalk Chat a few months ago.  For this reason, Ben Ammi has gone, not just mad but, stark raving mad.  I feel it is important to inform you that the woman (Rachel) who called Ben Ammi “Lord and Saviour” is now deceased.  And just for the record, the man who is supposed to have “anointed” Ben Ammi is dead and has been dead for a long time, now. 

 

ISRAEL DOES NOT KNOW!

 

“The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.”   Psalm 104:21

 

Why can’t we just seek Our GOD of Israel and be obedient to what HE requires of us?  After all, HIS Book of the Law and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets are our Bread of Life.

 

“Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;”   Isaiah 44:24,25

 

King David Feared and loved the GOD of Israel with all his heart and soul, and we have him as evidence that we, also, can indeed be people after GOD’s own heart.  Notice his Psalm 101:

 

“I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing. I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me. A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person. Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer. Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me. He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight. I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.”

 

I question the motives of those who promote Ben Ammi’s so-called “KOY” and disseminate information leading people to believe that he is a Messiah.  Ben Ammi’s works judge him to be nothing more than a Lawbreaker who is steadfastly working against the WORD of the GOD of Israel, and who is relentlessly expounding on his books, his diets, his authority, his being a Messiah, and his “Kingdom of Ben Ammi.” 

 

Wake up, Israel, and take diligent heed to the LAW and WORD of the GOD of Israel before it is too late.  Our GOD is taking back HIS Universe, and I PRAISE HIM, for I hate this world system that enables people to live as they choose rather than live by “every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD…” (Deuteronomy 8:3). 

 

“I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD. Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.”  

Psalm 104:33 – 35

 

“Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise.  Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting…”   Psalm 106:47

 

“For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.”   Psalm 5:12

 

WHO IS ON THE LORD’s SIDE, make haste to return to HIM and to HIS Book of the Law and to live and do it in Righteousness with your whole heart and soul!

 

BLESSED BE THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL FOR HIS MERCIFUL KINDNESS TOWARDS THOSE WHO SEEK HIM AND WHO ARE OBEDIENT TO HIS LAW!

 

Me and My GOD with me,

REFLECTING ON GOD’S WORD IN REGARD TO

HIS SEVENTH DAY SABBATH COMMANDMENT!

 

REMEMBER, THIS IS HIS ANNIVERSARY DAY OF REST,

AND OUR DAY TO KEEP IN REST AND AS A SIGN BETWEEN

HIM AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL!

 

“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;

and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:

because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”

Genesis 2:1 – 3

 

“…the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth

you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place,

let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”

Exodus 16:29

 

“…this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways

that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels

and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.”

Jeremiah 7:23,24

 

“And say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel;

Cursed be the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant,

Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth

out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice,

and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God:”

Jeremiah 11:3,4

 

As most of you know, I am a firm believer in living GOD’s Book of the Law, and that I strongly stress observance of GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath that HE proclaimed a “SIGN” between HIM and HIS Chosen People, Israel.  To strengthen the great significance of GOD’s Hallowed Seventh Day, HE used this Day of REST to prove HIS People, the Israelites, to see if they would walk in HIS LAW, or no (Exodus 16:4).

 

It didn’t take GOD long to find out that HIS Chosen People HE had JUST DELIVERED out of Egyptian bondage by HIS Mighty Hand before their very eyes, did not FEAR HIM to be OBEDIENT to HIS COMMANDMENT of the Holy Seventh Day of Rest.  The Holy ONE of Israel made no comment when the Israelites left the Manna “til the morning and it bred worms and stank.”  But, it was Moses who “was wroth with them.”  However, when some of the Children of Israel went out on the Seventh Day Sabbath to gather Manna, this, without a doubt, deeply upset the Holy ONE of Israel.

 

“And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none. And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?”   Exodus 16:27,28

 

The Israelites had failed their test!  It is obvious that the Holy ONE DID NOT want the Israelites leaving their places on HIS Holy Seventh Day of COMPLETE REST (Shabbatone in Hebrew).  And for some of us, if this is not understood, then Exodus 16:29 makes GOD’s COMMANDMENT perfectly clear without a shadow of a doubt.

 

“…the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.” 

 

The questions now become, Is the Holy ONE of Israel still proving us to see if we “will walk in HIS LAW, or no?”  Is HE still using HIS Holy Sabbath Day as an indicator, and are we at liberty to violate GOD’s COMMANDMENT “to abide every man in his place on the Seventh Day”?  Also, can we be expected to return to our heritage if we do violate this COMMANDMENT?

 

“Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.”   Ezekiel 22:26

 

Perhaps at this point, I should make readers aware of the basis for this particular post.

 

Before the recent “KenesiYAH Conference” in Jackson, Tennessee held on November 12 – 14, a notice was circulated stating, “This Conference Stars YHWH King Of The Universe!!”

 

Because the Conference called for activities on GOD’s Holy Sabbath Day of Complete REST, I knew that most of the attendees, if not all, would be leaving their places (homes and hotel rooms) on the Seventh Day, November 13, to take part in whatever was being offered on GOD’s Holy Day.  In my heart, I was immediately critical of this Conference for going against GOD’s COMMANDMENT to abide in our places on the Seventh Day of Rest.  Also, knowing fully well that the GOD of Israel is against bearing burdens on HIS Holy Sabbath Day, I thought to challenge the promoter for circulating that “This Conference Stars YHWH King Of the Universe” - words that were clearly construed to draw a crowd but displeased YIHOVAH.  And I wasn’t at all in agreement with charging a fee to attend the Conference, either. 

 

However, I, for some reason, changed my mind about contacting the promoter.  And in the interim, I learned that the Conference was a success and people had really gotten something out of this gathering.  Then I thought to myself how wonderful it is for Israelites to Glory and PRAISE the Holy ONE and rejoice in revering ONLY HIM.  I also thought that the GOD of Israel might have been truly pleased with the Conference and that perhaps HE had changed the WAY HE wants us to observe HIS Holy Seventh Day of REST.  I told myself that perhaps we CAN indeed gather and teach on this Hallowed Day.  Although I had these thoughts, I didn’t seek the Holy ONE for clarification on the matter.    And I left it at that without considering putting this notion of gathering on the Sabbath to the test and without further thoughts about the issue until this past Friday, November 19, just a few days after the Conference ended when the Holy ONE of Israel gave me clarification on the matter. 

 

On this Friday, while going about my daily readings, the Holy ONE showed me that we must keep HIS LAW, as it is written or face the consequences.  And no matter how zealous and passionate we are about our concerns to worship Our GOD of Israel, and no matter how jubilant and how much Praise and admiration we bestow upon HIM in a Conference, in a parade, or in the privacy of our homes, we have got to remain bound and TRUE to HIS LAWS – ALL OF THEM - to remember to do and observe them, as HE has COMMANDED, for this Divine LAW IS OUR LIFE and is to be kept (as it is written) FOREVER!

 

“And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.”   Deuteronomy 32:46,47

 

“Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, alway.”   Deuteronomy 11:1

 

“These are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe to do in the land, which the LORD God of thy fathers giveth thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth.”   Deuteronomy 12:1

 

“But the LORD, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power and a stretched out arm, him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship, and to him shall ye do sacrifice. And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which he wrote for you, ye shall observe to do for evermore; and ye shall not fear other gods.”   II Kings 17:36,37

 

The passage the Holy ONE showed me in Scripture that caused me to recall the November 12 – 13 KenesiYAH Conference and the activities held on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of Rest entailed the relocation of GOD’s Ark.  I did not search for this passage.  This passage was brought to me…ALL PRAISES DUE TO THE HOLY ONE!

 

“And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.”   I Chronicles 13:8

 

Without a doubt, King David and ALL Israel played before GOD WITH ALL THEIR MIGHT with SINGING, HARPS, PSALTERIES, TIMBRELS, CYMBOLS, and TRUMPETS.  For sure the Israelites made a great tumultuous noise in sincere PRAISE of the Most High GOD of Israel.  And indeed HE was taking notice!

 

I remember many years ago reading this passage for the very first time thinking about how wonderful it was for Israel to Praise GOD and how pleased HE must have been seeing HIS People Exalting HIM with such joyfulness and fervor.  But at that time, as I continued reading the chapter, something happened in the passage that I’m sure has caused Israelites and the Stranger alike to wonder why this GOD of Israel would so severely punish a man, during this moment of exultation and joy of HIM, for putting forth his hand to steady HIS Ark.  I read on with great sorrow for Uzza, seeking a valid reason for his death.

 

“And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled.  And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzza, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he died before God.”   I Chronicles 13:9,10

 

The valid reason was and still is KEEP GOD’s LAWS for HE will not forgo punishment if we don’t.  For me, this passage was a tremendous wakeup call that made me realize that no matter what…we, Israelites, must take heed to obey all GOD’s COMMANDMENTS, as they are written.  And when in doubt, rather than assume the wrong decision, err on the side of caution, i.e., err on the side of what's written.   Then we can always say, "We followed the Commandment that is written in GOD's Book of the Law!

 

The Conference of November 12 – 14, I’m sure was well organized with the Holy ONE in mind to draw as many people as possible and to make as much money as possible.  But given GOD’s LAW of the Holy Sabbath Day to “abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the Seventh Day,” has GOD given HIS consent and endorsed leaving our places, driving cars, teaching, and holding a Sabbath Service on this Seventh Day of Complete REST?  Now, since reading the passage about Uzza, I know for sure, the Holy ONE of Israel has not changed HIS LAW of the Sabbath.  It is yet valid, and we are bound to it, as well as to ALL of GOD’s LAWS.  And like Nehemiah, I remind everyone of how our forefathers profaned GOD’s Holy Day of REST even after having just returned to the land out of Babylonian captivity.

 

“Did not your fathers thus, and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city? yet ye bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the sabbath.”  

Nehemiah 13:18

 

If we are specifically advised to keep GOD’s Sabbath or be punished with death, that our servants, oxen, asses, and cattle are also supposed to rest, as well, and COMMANDED NOT to bear burdens on the Holy Seventh Day of Rest, then we have no business scheduling activities on this Holy Shabbatone (Sabbath of Complete REST Day).  If the Holy ONE wanted us assembling on HIS Holy Seventh Day of Rest, then HE would not have COMMANDED us to abide in our places on this Day of REST!!!  Surely that makes a lot of sense, right?  

 

“But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”   Exodus 20:10,11

 

“Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.  Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.”   Exodus 31:13 - 15

 

“Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.”   Deuteronomy 5:13,14

 

“And it came to pass, that when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark before the sabbath, I commanded that the gates should be shut, and charged that they should not be opened till after the sabbath: and some of my servants set I at the gates, that there should no burden be brought in on the sabbath day.”  

Nehemiah 13:19

 

“Thus saith the LORD; Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem; Neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the sabbath day, neither do ye any work, but hallow ye the sabbath day, as I commanded your fathers. But they obeyed not, neither inclined their ear, but made their neck stiff, that they might not hear, nor receive instruction. And it shall come to pass, if ye diligently hearken unto me, saith the LORD, to bring in no burden through the gates of this city on the sabbath day, but hallow the sabbath day, to do no work therein; Then shall there enter into the gates of this city kings and princes sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they, and their princes, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: and this city shall remain for ever.”   Jeremiah 17:21 – 25

 

“But if ye will not hearken unto me to hallow the sabbath day, and not to bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall not be quenched.”   Jeremiah 17:27

 

Although there is nothing written above about picking up sticks on the Holy Sabbath Day of REST, GOD condemned a man to death for this act (Numbers 15:32-35).  Doesn’t this sentence of death expound upon the great importance of observing this Holy Day, as it is written and not according to what we feel is acceptable?  Of course it does!  GOD is as serious as a heart attack about our KEEPING HIS Holy Seventh Day of COMPLETE REST and about JUDGING us if we profane it.  Other than picking up sticks on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of REST, what else might we do to cause Our GOD of Israel to be angry and “smite” or condemn us to death as HE did with Uzza and the man who was found picking up sticks on HIS Holy Seventh Day Sabbath?  What about CARRYING all the books, charts, video equipment, teaching aids, and other paraphernalia we need for instruction and for the operation of the Conference?  Who are we fooling?  All of us are aware of what it entails to organize and hold a Conference.  It takes a lot of WORK, as well as a lot of energy to sustain each day’s agenda, and I am only making reference to the activities that are scheduled on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbath. 

 

What about the hot meals served at the hotels or at the meeting place on the Holy Seventh Day when we are COMMANDED to prepare on the Sixth Day the food to be eaten on the Seventh Day of REST?  What about burdening someone to bear even sandwiches and beverages to drink if food is served at the meeting place?  What about getting from the hotel to the meeting place?  What about driving or being driven to the meeting place?  Think about all the work that transpires on a three-day Conference that includes GOD’s Holy Day of COMPLETE REST. 

 

And when we involve ourselves in all these transactions, we say, “This Conference Stars YHWH King Of The Universe.”  I don’t think so!  As a matter of fact, I know what “Thus Saith the LORD,” and I know better!  According to HIS WORD, HE is not pleased and no more pleased with us than HE was with Uzza, King David, and the others.  I also know that Our GOD is not pleased with our charging a fee to hear HIS WORD. 

 

“The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.”   Micah 3:11

 

I see nothing wrong with Israelites devising ways to raise money, but given the above verse, we should keep GOD’s Ways out of such plans, i.e., don’t make money off of the WORD of GOD.  By all means, create jobs, have dances, parties, sell dinners, plan spring, summer, and winter attractions, and keep them above suspicion, but don’t include a fee if at all GOD’s WORD is involved.  Let us be about following GOD’s Counsel and not that of our own.  And I can’t stress enough that it does not entail charging and paying money to hear HIS Truth.  When our hearts are right, Our GOD prospers our way.  When our hearts are NOT right, there is no peace to the wicked. 

 

When GOD did not pardon what Uzza did while King David and the Israelites were rejoicing before the Holy ONE giving HIM Praise and Glory, then what imaginations of our hearts think we can be pardoned for breaking GOD’s Law of the Seventh Day when HE distinctly COMMANDED us to “ABIDE YE EVERY MAN IN HIS PLACE, LET NO MAN GO OUT OF HIS PLACE ON THE SEVENTH DAY”?  Is this not a COMMANDMENT?  If you agree that it is, then how can we justify leaving our places on this Holy Seventh Day of REST to participate in any kind of service - Conference, Unity Shabbot or other function?  We have more than enough time to schedule get-togethers and have spiritual assemblies.  None of these gatherings should be scheduled for the Holy Seventh Day of COMPLETE REST.  And regardless of what different Messianic leaders or Prophets or Levites might say to justify it, there is NO Scripture to support such meetings on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day.  The Children of Israel did not gather or assemble on the Seventh Day in the Wilderness, and they are dead wrong to do so now!  The GOD of Israel does not change, and HE is not going to change HIS Law of the Holy Seventh Day that dates back to the end of HIS CREATION.   The Law of the Seventh Day Sabbath is to REST and keep the day “Holy.”

 

“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.”   Genesis 2:1 – 3

 

“Thou camest down also upon mount Sinai, and spakest with them from heaven, and gavest them right judgments, and true laws, good statutes and commandments: And madest known unto them thy holy sabbath, and commandedst them precepts, statutes, and laws, by the hand of Moses thy servant:”   Nehemiah 9:13,14

 

GOD’s Holy Seventh Day is an anniversary in remembrance of the Six Days it took HIM to CREATE the Heavens and the Earth and all things therein.  Therefore, regardless of how much we invest in this day being of spiritual significance in Conferences or other affairs to show forth HIS Praise, we are so wrong to do so.  And it’s simply because Our GOD wants us in our places on HIS Holy Seventh Day Sabbath.  By the way, if the Conference is on a weekend, there is nothing wrong with staying in our hotel rooms when the Sabbath begins and until it’s over. 

 

After GOD COMMANDED us to abide in our places on HIS Holy Seventh Day, as we know, a man thought it was all right to gather sticks.  Today many Israelites feel it’s quite all right to drive cars and use other means of transportation to ASSEMBLE and give Praise and Thanksgiving to Our GOD on HIS Holy Seventh Day, but when we do, we are ever so wrong.  Actually, we are dead wrong!

 

GOD’s LAWS, COMMANDMENTS, and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets speak volumes, and unless GOD stipulated changes, there are no exceptions to HIS Ordinances.   Throughout the “Old Testament,” we find that GOD sent HIS Prophets and instructed them to rise up early to go to the Israelites to urge them to return back to the LAW that HE gave to HIS Prophet Moses.  I only reiterate that which has already been COMMANDED of us.  And we can either accept GOD’s LAWS or contrive justification to circumvent them.  If we are in agreement to accept GOD’s LAWS, then we cannot dismiss the LAW to abide in our places on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of REST.  It’s just that simple.  Throughout GOD’s WORD, we learn that we must follow GOD’s LAW or face repercussions.

 

“But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.”   Deuteronomy 30:14 - 16

 

“Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart: therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do; but they did them not.”  Jeremiah 11:8

 

Let us not forget that OBEDIENCE to GOD’s LAW should be our highest priority IF it is our intention to return back to our heritage (Deuteronomy 30:1-3 and I Samuel 15:19). 

 

“Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.  Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:  And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”  

Exodus 19:4 – 6

 

“But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.”   Deuteronomy 4:29 – 31

 

“And Moses and the priests the Levites spake unto all Israel, saying, Take heed, and hearken, O Israel; this day thou art become the people of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt therefore obey the voice of the LORD thy God, and do his commandments and his statutes, which I command thee this day.”   Deuteronomy 27:9,10

 

“If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD; Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance. Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee. Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.”   Deuteronomy 28:58 – 61

 

“And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day. And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers: If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.”   Deuteronomy 30:8 – 10

 

“Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come? Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.”   Isaiah 42:23,24

 

Thus, I urge everyone to consider ALL GOD’s COMMANDMENTS, especially in regard to holding Conferences, teaching, and doing any other activities on GOD’s Holy Seventh Day of REST since we are supposed to abide in our places on this Holy Seventh Day.  NO ONE is in favor of coming together to sing and give Praise to the Holy ONE of Israel, Our GOD and SAVIOR, more than myself – NO ONE!  But I would make arrangements for such an occasion to be held on any day but GOD’s Seventh Day of REST!  And we have six other days from which to choose for assembling and gathering for Spiritual Reunions. 

 

Enough of seeking the imaginations of our hearts and devising new means and ways to divine and worship Our GOD of Israel.   The GOD of Israel has already established how HE wants us to serve and worship HIM:  according to HIS LAW and with our whole heart and soul and in Righteousness.   Therefore, seek GOD’s Counsel and abide by HIS Ways that HE left written for us to follow.  If revelations and the imaginations of our hearts that we embark upon are not in accord with Isaiah 8:20, then these teachings, persuasions, endeavors, events, and doings are not encouraged by Our GOD of Israel. 

 

“To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”  Isaiah 8:20

 

We must not ever forget that although we are GOD’s Chosen People, “LIFE” is not about the Children of Israel.  The ideal “LIFE” (style) is about keeping GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments and, in doing so, enjoying peace, happiness, and prosperity in our heritage with Our GOD in our midst!  This “LIFE,” per se, is the panacea, the Divine Utopia that all peoples upon this Earth should seek for keeping GOD’s Ways of Righteousness and serving and worshipping HIM is with great rewards.

 

Like many of us, I seek to return to our heritage, and it will only happen when we decide to be OBEDIENT to GOD’s LAWS that HE gave to HIS Prophet Moses for us to live and do.  So eager we are to be accepted, recognized, and joined with others, but is this what matters?  We must be extremely cautious in all that we do.  Praise is comely only for the upright.  We can have a thousand with us, but if the Holy ONE of Israel is not with us, then, let’s face it, we are lost! 

 

“The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul:

the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart:

the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever:

the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold:

sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Moreover by them is thy servant warned:

and in keeping of them there is great reward.”

Psalm 19:7 - 11

 

FEAR AND GLORY YIHOVAH AND HONOR AND KEEP ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS, LAWS, STATUTES, AND JUDGMENTS!

AN UPDATED SPECIAL NOTE ON GOD's HOLY SEVENTH DAY OF COMPLETE REST!

 

I can understand how we would have questions about certain passages, and the reason is that not every single thing written in the Hebrews Scriptures is crystal clear.  I have found that over the decades, some revelations have actually taken that long before I could come to a full understanding of what's written.  Also, we must understand that the Holy ONE does not give us all that we should learn at one sitting and not even in one year.  It truly takes time to internalize all the facts and Truths of the LAW and GOD's WORD and the enlightenment behind them.  For that reason, we must continuously read the TORAH and GOD's WORD to HIS Prophets on a yearly basis.

 

However, given some passages that are crystal clear, I cannot understand how some of us can read into what's written that which is not there.  I bring into issue GOD's Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST (called a Shabbatone in Hebrew) that we are Commanded to observe in order that we, our animals, and our servants will be refreshed. 

 

"Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed."   Exodus 23:12

 

Just the above verse is enough to make us understand what Complete REST is all about.  But no, it really isn't.  One would think we would be ecstatic to have a day off recognizing the Glorious "Sign" between Our GOD of Israel and the Children of Israel, doing nothing but sleeping and sitting on our behinds Praising the GOD of Israel with THANKS for not having to work – some literally like a slave.  Unfortunately, Israelites want to use this day for just about any and everything but for Complete REST.  And if the above Scripture is not enough we have others that are even more precise and to the point and without confusion:

 

"See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day."   Exodus 16:29

 

"And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed."   Exodus 31:12 - 17

 

Some Israelites honestly believe that the Sabbath Day of Complete REST doesn't start until in the morning, i.e., from morning until evening – disregarding the fact that the CREATOR started each new 24-hour day in the evening (Genesis First Chapter) which gave us our foundation for determining each day of the week. 

 

As I have pointed out Isaiah 30:29, makes mention of "the night when a holy solemnity is kept".  That verse also tells us that Holy Days are kept in the night.  But then there are other Scriptures, as well:

 

"I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons."   Psalm 16:7

 

"Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge."   Psalm 19:2

 

"At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments."   Psalm 119:62

 

If the Holy Sabbath of Complete REST is not observed at night, then what about all other activities that occur at night?  Or do we just pick and choose which ones to observe at night?  What about the sacrifice that is left to burn into the night?  Do GOD's Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, Ordinances, revelations, and dreams bestowed upon us cease to have credibility in the night season?   Hopefully, now when we think about it, starting Holy Days from morning to evening makes no sense at all.  However, it does make sense that GOD's Ways and Ordinances DO NOT cease in the night season.  All HIS Ways must be observed AT THEIR APPOINTED TIMES, and even in the night.

 

My hope is that all of us will seek a better understanding of GOD's Truth regarding HIS Law of the Holy Seventh Day Sabbath because those who profane it are subject to death, as Exodus indicates.

 

I have had several debates on the topic of when and how we should observe GOD's Seventh Day Sabbath.  The when:  Friday sunset to Saturday sundown.  The how:  In your places, wherever that might be and without holding classes, traveling, picnicking, cooking, spending money, and fulfilling pleasures – in essence, keeping this day "Holy" and at "REST".

 

Recently, I had a debate on the Sabbath that was about "holy convocation".  It seems many Israelites seem to believe that although the GOD of Israel Commanded Complete REST for us and our animals that given what's written in Leviticus 23rd Chapter makes it all right to have an assembly of worship on the Sabbath Day. 

 

"Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings."   Leviticus 23:3

 

Some people do not take into consideration that, ONE, we are Commanded to abide in our places, and TWO, we are also Commanded to REST.  They seem to think that "holy convocation" means to gather, just like church folk do on Sunday, and hold Sabbath Service.  They could not be more wrong!  It is impossible to enjoy Complete REST while in travel and while teaching.

 

"Holy convocation" does not and cannot mean to assemble.  My proof positive is found in the Book of Exodus, where the GOD of Israel tells the Israelites to observe the First Day of Passover:

 

"And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save thatwhich every man must eat, that only may be done of you."   Exodus 12:16

 

The key point here is that on the First Day of Passover, the Children of Israel were Commanded to stay in their "households" and consume their lamb or goat. 

 

"Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:"   Exodus 12:3

 

"Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover."   Exodus 12:21

 

"In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof."   Exodus 12:49

 

Hence, the Children of Israel were not Commanded to assemble, and "holy convocation" could not mean to assemble for Passover.  And by the same token, Israelites cannot use "holy convocation" as reason to hold a Sabbath Service.

 

Why are we still like our forefathers, that is being Hell bent on deviating from what's written and leaving us to our own confusion?  Check the Hebrew Scriptures.  Of all the Holy Days mentioned, the two that remarkably head the list are GOD's Holy Seventh Day Sabbath of Complete REST, which is, by the way, a "Sign" between HIM and the Children of Israel, and HIS Awesome Passover – both for HIS GLORY and HIS Holy Name's Sake.  The Holy ONE of Israel has made the Sabbath "Sign" for HIMSELF for being the All-Mighty CREATOR GOD and for establishing CREATION in the BEGINNING all by HIMSELF.  HE has established the Passover Memorial for HIS Great and Holy Name's Sake that all the world will remember it FOREVER because of HIS Powerful Hand that brought our forefathers out of Ancient Egyptian bondage!  Therefore, not under any circumstances can we err by profaning these Holy Days, or any other Holy Day for that matter. And we should always strive to observe them with utmost sincerity and heart, exactly as they are written in the LAW.

 

 Remember, Our GOD of Israel formed us for HIS Praise.  Thus, when we demonstrate HIS Ways of Righteousness and observe HIS Feast Days that then we do HIM Justice and encourage others to follow our lead.  For that reason, GOD's Commandments for keeping HIS Holy Days are not encrypted and need no interpretation.  It only must be in our hearts to do what's written.

 

"If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it."   Deuteronomy 30:10 - 16

 

At some point, it has got to be in our hearts to FEAR the Holy ONE of Israel to follow HIS written LAW, and until it is in our hearts to do so, we are not ready to fulfill Deuteronomy 30th Chapter.  And worse, at GOD's set time when HE will recover the Remnant of Israel exiled throughout the world, not all of us will be among that number.

 

"And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee, And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul; That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee. If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee: And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers. And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live."   Deuteronomy 30:1 – 6

 

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.  The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness."   Isaiah 10:20 – 22

 

"Thus saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants' sakes, that I may not destroy them all. And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and mine elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there."   Isaiah 65:8,9

 

After leaving out of Ancient Egypt and forty years in the Wilderness, the Children of Israel walked into the Land of Israel as a Nation.  This time the "he goats" will be first to arrive and prepare the way for the Nation of Israel, as each arrives.  But where are they?  And where are Israelites who will fulfill the Second Great Exodus that Our GOD of Israel will bring to fruition?

 

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth."   Isaiah 11:11,12

 

"…behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land."   Jeremiah 23:7,8

 

According to these passages the CREATOR GOD confirms exactly what HIS Plan entails - ONLY A REMNANT will be recovered!

 

Those of us who desire to be in that number, let us come together to make a pact to follow the Holy ONE of Israel and HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, as they are written with fasting and prayer, so that Our GOD of Israel will hear us and Deliver us speedily into the Wilderness where we will be encouraged in HIS Ways of Righteousness.

IT IS IN VAIN TO SEEK PROSPERITY AND RELIEF IN THIS CAPTIVITY!

 

Our afflictions result from the curses Our GOD put upon us, and nothing we do will alleviate this misery in America.  And sooner than later, we will all come to know this truth.  The death, sickness, suffering, and despair among us is too great for us to bear.  Thus, it is incumbent upon us to get Our GOD’s attention to hear our supplications and change the times, in order that we will return to HIM and to our heritage and live according to HIS Ways of Righteousness.  No one lives for the True and Living GOD.  No one is in Jerusalem professing HIS Holy Name and Exalting HIM.  And no one is making the sacrifices and offerings HE loves.  IF things are to change, then we must start the process.  After all, we were formed to show forth GOD’s Praise BUT in the land where HE has ordained Israelites to serve HIM (Ezekiel 20:40,41), and the United States has nothing to do with it!  In America, Our GOD won’t let us forget that we were exiled to serve our enemies in their lands for our great sins against Our Loving GOD that gave us everything and more than that.  When will we wake up to realize the power of our actions.  Our love for our GOD and HIS LAW got us in the land flowing with milk and honey, and our transgressions against HIM got us enslaved under ruthless Gentiles.  BUT if we use our energies to live according to GOD’s Book of the Law and appeal to ONLY HIM for Deliverance, rather than succumb to life in Gentile lands, then we can expect, through GOD’s Blessings, a dramatic change in our lives.

 

“HIS Hand is stretched out still,” and it’s up to us to determine our destiny.  The “Dry Bones” CAN live but only if they will turn to the Holy ONE of Israel and live by HIS Book of the Law, as it is written.

 

“Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people,

and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them:

and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them

from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:”

Isaiah 5:25,26

 

“Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is

written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside

therefrom to the right hand or to the left;

 

“That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you;

neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them:

 

“But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this day.”

Joshua 23:6 - 8

 

“And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.”

Exodus 15:26

Spare the Elders of Israel.  Open their eyes, Father, and cause them to fear you to do your Will.  Have Mercy, O LORD GOD of Israel and cause the world to know your TRUTH.  FORGIVE, Father of Abraham and remember your Covenant with Jacob and your Promises to the Children of Israel.  Remember your Holy City Jerusalem and remember King Solomon’s Prayer for you to hear us when we pray toward your Holy City.  Save us, Father, for ONLY YOU have that power.  SAVE us as you saved our forefathers out of Egypt by your Awesome SUPREMACY and MIGHT.  Don’t leave us to waste away in the lands of our captivity. 

 

In your own words, LORD GOD of Israel, “Let us reason together.”  We need you, LORD GOD, like we’ve never needed you before.  Make haste, Dear Father of Israel,  Save the SEED of Jacob and let us LIVE FOR YOU in Righteousness.

Save the Great Nation that YOU told Moses about - those special ones who will know only to serve and worship YOU, and who will have it no other way!  And forgive us our sins, and forgive our forefathers for theirs, as well.  They did you wrong, Father of Abraham, and too many of us, today, also do wrong by you.  But we are waking up, and we are turning to YOU.  For that reason, GOD of Israel, be Merciful, forgive, and cause THY FACE to shine upon us.

 

Save those of us who seek to follow your Book of the Law, as it is written!  Save the Righteous Remnant for your GLORY and PRAISE!

 

LORD GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB,

SAVE your Chosen, the SEED of Jacob, The Remnant you are Calling for Your Holy Name's Sake!

 

SAVE US JUST ONE MORE TIME, HEAVENLY FATHER of Abraham!

 

SAVE US, so that we may Glory in your PRAISE and your EXALTATION!

 

Re-establish THY Holy Temple, so that all peoples may go before you to worship YOU and learn that YOU ALONE are the True and Living GOD of this Universe and that all people must live according to your Laws, Statutes, and Judgments if we are to enjoy your Peace and Your Happiness on your Earth!

 

"O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants' sake, the tribes of thine inheritance. The people of thy holiness have possessed it but a little while: our adversaries have trodden down thy sanctuary. We are thine: thou never barest rule over them; they were not called by thy name."   Isaiah 63:17-19

 

LORD GOD of Abraham, be with those of us who have the desires to return to your Lawful Ways, Your Book of the Law, that you gave to your Prophet Moses and give us the courage, wisdom, and power to be re-established in your Holy Name.  Let us show the world that YOU, the Most High GOD, the CREATOR, the Holy ONE of Israel are still in control of this Universe.  Give us a steadfast heart and determination to be True only to YOU and not to falter or waiver from your desires for the Remnant you have called to return, so that YOU may perform your promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  Establish that “GREAT NATION” YOU told Moses about, FATHER,  –  the Israelites who will be totally devoted to YOU, your Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, and who will establish your Holy Kingdom in Truth and in Righteousness.

 

LORD GOD of Abraham, re-establish your Holy Temple, so that all peoples may come to worship before you and learn about your Ways of Righteousness and your Merciful Kindness towards all peoples who seek to know your Truth.

 

O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL IS JUST AND GOOD!

 

MAY OUR SAVIOR GOD OF ISRAEL BLESS AND BE WITH ALL WHO SEEK HIM

IN TRUTH DURING THIS ROSH CHODESH AND ALL THE YEAR,

 ALWAYS!

Servant of the Most High GOD of Israel for HIS Holy Name's Sake!

IF WE SINCERELY WANT TO BE A RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE, THEN

A MESSAGE TO ALL MESSIANICS:

 

 WAIT ON THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL

AND

MAKE HIM YOUR

LORD AND SAVIOR - NOT “MAN.”

(Psalm 25:4,5)

 

"…and thou shalt know

that I am theLORD:

for they shall not be ashamed

That wait for me."

 Isaiah 49:23

 

 

 

“And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God,

and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them,

I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.”

Deuteronomy 8:19

 

 

“Whom have I in heaven but thee?

and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.”

Psalm 73:25

 

“Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.

 

“O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.

 

“I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death:

O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction:

repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.”  

Hosea 13:4,9,14

 

“Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done,

and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee:

if  I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.”  

Psalm 40:5

 

“But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children,

and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you,

but go and serve other gods, and worship them:

 

“Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house,

which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight;

and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people:”  

I Kings 9:6,7

 

THEREFORE, FOR WHAT REASON

DO WE NEED JC OR ANY ONE ELSE

BUT YIHOVAH,

THE ALL-MIGHTY GOD OF ISRAEL?!

 

 

“Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.

 

“He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen.”    Deuteronomy 10:20,21

 

“That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”   Deuteronomy 30:20

 

“Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

 

“Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.”   Psalm 107:31,32

 

“I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt:  OPEN THY MOUTH WIDE, AND I WILL FILL IT.”  Psalm 37:10

 

AGAIN AND AGAIN, I ASK:

FOR WHAT REASON DO WE NEED JC

OR ANY ONE ELSE

BUT YIHOVAH

OUR ONLY GOD AND SAVIOR?

 

“And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,

 

“To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?”   Deuteronomy 10:12,13

 

“At the same time, saith the LORD, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people.”   Jeremiah 31:1

 

“Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee:

and let such as love thy salvation say continually,

Let God be magnified.”

Psalm 70:4

 

“My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day…

“I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD:

I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.

“Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things:

O God, who is like unto thee!”

Psalm 71:15,16,19

 

“And Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven:  And he said, LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above,

or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy

with thy servants

that walk before thee with all their heart:”

I Kings 8:22,23

 

FOR WHAT REASON DO WE NEED JC

OR ANY ONE ELSE

BUT YIHOVAH?

 

“And they shall know that I am the LORD their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them: I am the LORD their God.

Exodus 29:46

 

“And God spake all these words, saying,

 

“I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt,

out of the house of bondage.

 

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”  

Exodus 20:1 - 3

 

FOR WHAT REASON DO WE NEED JC

OR ANY ONE ELSE

BUT YIHOVAH,

THE LORD OUR GOD THAT SAVED ISRAEL OUT OF EGYPT?

 

“…they shall CALL ON MY NAME, and I will hear them:  I will say, It is my people:  and they shall say, The LORD is my God.”   Zechariah 13:9

 

Given all the above Scripture, YOU MESSIANICS should realize that we should not be trusting in or magnifying “man” - not any “man” for the Holy ONE of Israel is a JEALOUS GOD, and HE wants all the Praise and Glory for HIMSELF!  HE ALONE is Our SAVIOR, and there is none else:

 

“I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.”   Isaiah 43:11

 

“Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.”   Isaiah 44:8

 

“Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together:  who hath declared this from ancient time?  who hath told it from that time?  have not I the LORD?  And there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.

 

“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.”   Isaiah 45:21,22

 

FOR WHAT REASON DO WE NEED JC OR ANY ONE ELSE

BUT YIHOVAH?

 

Our Righteous GOD gave us HIS Holy Book of the Law – not the “New Testament” that was established by “man” to support his man-made, very well organized and deceptive religion.

 

WE DO NOT NEED JC!!!

 

The TEACHINGS of the GOD of Israel are found in HIS Book of the Law, and in no way do HIS Teachings even parallel those of JC.  As a matter of fact, the “New Testament” and the teachings of JC were specifically written and embellished to REPLACE GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments - hence, the reason for the word “New” in the title of this book! 

 

This is one of the greatest sins one can commit against the Most High GOD of Israel.  Not only is GOD’s Law to be kept “to a thousand generations” and “FOR EVERMORE” (Deuteronomy 7:9; II Kings 17:37), but no one can add to or diminish from all that the GOD of Israel has COMMANDED that we should observe to DO (Deuteronomy 12:32)! 

 

Equally as important, “Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them, And all the people shall say, Amen” (Deuteronomy 27:26).  Perhaps JC wasn’t aware of this Law!

 

The “New Testament” and this “man” JC have not only added to GOD’s WORD, but they have disclaimed GOD’s Ordinances and changed them altogether!

 

“The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.”   Isaiah 24:4 - 6  

 

Every man/woman who serves and worships the All-Mighty GOD of Israel knows to Exalt ONLY HIM and HIS Book of the Law, for through meditating in this Righteous Book, one is made wise and, therefore, learns of GOD’s Truth and magnifies it and nothing else!

 

“And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law.   Deuteronomy 32:4

 

“Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee:  turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.

 

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein:  for then thou shal make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”   Joshua 1:7,8

 

Equally important, the wise will confirm that there is but ONE GOD, the CREATOR, and there is none else!

 

“Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.”   Isaiah 43:10

 

“I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

 

“That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I amthe LORD, and there is none else.”   Isaiah 45:5,6

 

“But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.

 

“Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.”   Jeremiah 10:10,11

 

Finally, when we realize that NO ONE can deliver out of GOD’s Hand, i.e., reverse the CURSES HE put on the Nation of Israel (or anyone else for that matter), then we will understand why the man, JC, is a farce, and thus, was not able to save the “Lost Sheep of the House of Israel,” or establish GOD’s Kingdom.  Thus, we also realize why the writers of the “New Testament” conveniently wrote JC completely out of the picture and into a false doctrine and forged sense of hope that lies in the hearts of naïve and badly informed believers! 

 

The Holy ONE of Israel wants HIS People to SERVE, TRUST, BELIEVE, HOPE, AND WORSHIP ONLY HIM!  AND HE WILL HAVE IT NO OTHER WAY!

 

“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.”   Nahum 1:7

 

WE NEED THE SAME GOD THAT SAVED THE NATION OF ISRAEL

OUT OF EGYPT

TO ONCE AGAIN

DELIVER US OUT OF OUR ENEMIES’ LANDS!!!

 

“And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities,

and want of bread in all your places: yet have ye not returned unto me,

saith the LORD.

 

“And also I have withholden the rain from you,

when there were yet three months to the harvest:

and I caused it to rain upon one city,

and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon,

and the piece whereupon it rained not withered.

 

“So two or three cities wandered unto one city, to drink water;

but they were not satisfied: yet have ye not returned unto me,

saith the LORD.

 

“I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased,

the palmerworm devoured them: yet have ye not returned unto me,

saith the LORD.

 

“I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses;

and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils:

yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

 

“I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,

and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning:

yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.”

Amos 4:6  – 11

 

“For thus saith the LORD unto the house of Israel,

Seek ye me, and ye shall live

 

“Seek the LORD, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph,

and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Beth-el.”

Amos 5:4,6

 

“The Lord GOD hath sworn by his holiness, that, lo, the days shall come upon you,

that he will take you away with hooks, and your posterity with fishhooks.”

Amos 4:2

 

“The virgin of Israel is fallen; she shall no more rise: she is forsaken upon her land; there is none to raise her up.

 

“Therefore the LORD, the God of hosts, the Lord, saith thus;

Wailing shall be in all streets; and they shall say in all the highways, Alas! alas!

and they shall call the husbandman to mourning,

and such as are skilful of lamentation to wailing.

 

“Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus,

saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts.”

Amos 5:2,16,27

(See also Jeremiah 30:13)

 

Why didn’t JC know about Amos’ PROPHECIES?  Why didn’t he know that GOD had cursed the “Lost Sheep of the House of Israel” (Matt.15:24), and that it would be impossible to SAVE them?  And why didn’t he know that we would still be UNSAVED unto this day?!   I’ll tell you why.  When the tale was woven to establish this false religion, X-tianity, the writers were so busy fabricating what they thought would be a foolproof theology that they neglected to do their homework!  They should have researched what “Thus Saith the LORD,” first!  How long will intelligent people continue to believe in this “man” JC?

 

WE DO NOT NEED JC! 

 

WE NEED THE GOD OF ABRAHAM!

 

“Therefore, behold the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said,

The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;

But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel

from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: 

and I will bring them again unto their land

that I gave unto their fathers.”

Jeremiah 16:14,15

 

“Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name:  bring an offering,

and come before him:  worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. 

FEAR BEFORE HIM ALL THE EARTH…”

I Chronicles 16:29,30

 

If the Holy ONE of Israel DECLARED that there is NONE TO PLEAD OUR CAUSE (Jeremiah 30:13), then of what value was JC???  Obviously, this man was/is of no value to the Children of Israel at all.  Hence, again and again I urge Messianics to turn to the GOD of Israel and believe, hope, and trust in ONLY HIM for HE is the ONLY ONE that has proven HIMSELF to be able to truly SAVE HIS People out of the hands of their enemies.

 

O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD

AND THAT THERE IS NONE LIKE THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL!

 

Tziona Yisrael,

Servant of the Most High GOD of Israel for HIS Holy Name’s Sake

 

P.S.

 

I live to Exalt the Most High GOD of Israel and HIS Righteous Book of the Law and all because returning to HIM and serving and worshipping HIM (when our forefathers wouldn’t) will cause Our GOD and SAVIOR to return back to us, HIS Chosen People.  Therefore, the more Israelites involved in this great Mission to return to the Holy ONE and HIS Law, the sooner the GOD’s TRUTH will be disseminated around the world and the sooner the True and Living GOD will be revealed, magnified, and PRAISED by all (Isaiah 43:21).  And LORD knows this “man” JC, or whatever people choose to call him, will have nothing to do with bringing about this disclosure or the Redemption and Deliverance from all the perils upon the SEED of the Children of Israel, as well as the rest of the nations on this Earth for that matter.   And the reason is that the man JC, in the “NT,” is too busy shedding light on himself to give Praise and Glory to the Most High GOD of Israel, which is all that this GOD wanted most from HIS Chosen People.

 

It should be realized that GOD did not let Samuel’s words fall to the ground, i.e., everything Samuel said came to pass (I Samuel 3:19).  But this was not the case with the “man” JC, and yet he was/is worshipped and magnified as if he were the GOD of this Universe.   And indeed many people think that he is.  But if he is a god or if he is “the son of God,” then certainly he should have known that GOD’s Kingdom was NOT at hand (Matthew 10:5 - 7) – a blunder from which he will never recover! 

 

And since JC could not make this significant call that would have proven his identity and godliness, the wise should know that he is as much a lying prophet as was Hananiah who disputed GOD's WORD at the mouth of HIS Prophet Jeremiah who had already said that the Tribe of Judah would be in Babylonian captivity for seventy years.  Afterwards, Hananiah claimed that the Judahites would be captives for only two years rather than seventy.  Consequently, Hananiah paid with his life for making the Judahites “trust in a lie” (Jeremiah 28th Chapter). 

 

Is not this what JC has done?  Hasn't this man-god, be he real or imaginary, made people believe in lies?  He was not "sent to the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel" because they were not there (James 1:1), and GOD's Kingdom was not "nigh".  

 

As well, we should give more thought to the fact that “there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face” (Deuteronomy 34:10).  That kind of leaves the “Son of God” out in the cold; wouldn’t you say?

 

And finally, GOD said, “The beast of the field shall honor me, the dragons and the owls:  because I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert to give drink to my people, my chosen” (Isaiah 43:20).  There’s much to be gleaned from this passage!  But suffice it to say that the beasts of the field know well the identity of the CREATOR, and they know even better that this All-Mighty GOD is the ONLY ONE that deserves ALL THE GLORY.  Unfortunately, these days, when there is a drought, severe storm, flooding, waters in the desert or forest (lightning) fires, crippling dust storms and famine, people, not the beasts of the field, but PEOPLE will credit “Mother Nature” for these weather patterns and not make the slightest connection to the Most High GOD.

 

“That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.  I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.”   Isaiah 45:6,7

 

However, for sure great afflictions will cause many people and Nations to turn to the GOD with the OMNIPOTENCE to SAVE and DELIVER out of harms way, and this will be the GOD they will serve and worship (Hosea 5:15).  I don’t think it’s necessary to reveal that this GOD will be the same GOD that SAVED the Children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage!

 

“Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.”  

Psalm 96:12,13

 

“What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?  Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?  Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;”   Psalm 114:5 – 7

 

The WISE will understand!

 

FEAR AND GLORY YIHOVAH ALWAYS!

 

P.P.S.

 

LORD, You were our help during Biblical days, and you did not pass the buck.  You were a Voice and a genuine Worker for us, and from the fruits of your labors our trifling forefathers were indeed saved and redeemed many times from the hands of their enemies, albeit in vain to perpetuate many sins against you.   But things have changed somewhat, and many of us have returned to you.  Therefore, once again, LORD GOD of Israel, save those of us who believe and trust in ONLY YOU to do your Will, but this time save us from the four corners of this Earth for your Holy Name’s Sake.

 

“When thy people Israel be smitten down before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee, and shall turn again to thee, and confess thy name, and pray, and make supplication unto thee in this house:  Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy people Israel, and bring them again unto the land which thou gavest unto their fathers.”   I Kings 8:33,34

 

“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;

 

“But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.”   Jeremiah 16:14,15

 

BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE GOD OF ISRAEL!  IT WILL HAPPEN!!!

“Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

 

“And I will wait upon the Lord, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob,

and I will look for him.”  

Isaiah 8:16,17

 

Let us put the Most High GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel back into our lives, our hearts, our thoughts, and in everything that we do.  Focusing on HIM and HIS Ways, as we come and go in our daily routines is ever so helpful in maintaining healthy spirits and acquiring strength and knowledge of HIS Paths of Righteousness.   This attitude certainly helps in making us meek, albeit but not weak, ALL PRAISES DUE TO THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL.

 

“Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built.”   Zechariah 8:9

EXPOUNDING ON WHEN THE CREATOR’s 24-HOUR DAY BEGINS:

 

I happen to be talking with my husband regarding when each new day begins.  And his input was much like that of Brother Kweli’s.  In essence, he said:

 

In The BEGINNING there was only “Darkness.”  Therefore, because “Darkness” preceded “Light,” it stands to reason why the “darkness,” which was initially first, begins the new day and not the “morning.” 

 

“In the beginning…darkness was upon the face of the deep…  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”   Genesis 1:1 - 3

 

In my opinion, adding to this belief is the CREATOR’s pronouncement of the use of “Darkness,” or rather evening, when ending and beginning each new day:

 

“…And the evening and the morning were the second day.

 

“…And the evening and the morning were the third day.

 

“…And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

 

“…And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

 

“…And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”   Genesis1:8 - 31

 

If we cannot recognize when to begin our 24-hour days, how then can we observe GOD’s Holy Seventh Day Sabbaths to rest and be refreshed, and how then are we to observe HIS Holy Feast Days, as we are Commanded?  Hence, it behooves us to read GOD’s WORD and take note of all the Scriptures as to when our forefathers observed each new day.  The information is there, if we will only accept it.  There are several specific passages that cannot be ignored. 

 

Genesis First Chapter is already suggested.  Another passage is in Judges where Samson tells the Philistines to solve his riddle “within seven days.”  And “on the Seventh Day before the sun went down,” the Philistines told him the meaning of his riddle.  Point being that the Philistines knew that had they waited until AFTER sundown, then they would have been in the Eighth Day and too late to receive the reward Samson had promised them (Judges 14th Chapter).

 

More evidence is in Nehemiah 13th Chapter.  Nehemiah is angered by people profaning the Holy Seventh Day by selling their wares to the stiffnecked Israelites who did not hesitate to buy them.  So, “…when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark BEFORE THE SABBATH,” Nehemiah “commanded that the gates should be shut…”  Hence, Nehemiah wanted to prepare for the impending Holy Seventh Day to be sure that no sins would be committed after sundown, which is when the Sabbath or Seventh Day would obviously begin.  Again, this is more evidence that the new day begins at sundown/evening/darkness. 

 

I would be remiss if I did not also include the fact that Scripture is clear on Passover and the Day of Atonement beginning in the evening at sundown. 

 

PASSOVER:   “In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.”   Exodus 12:18

 

THE DAY OF ATONEMENT:   “It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.”   Leviticus23:32 

 

The GOD of Israel is and always has been consistent in teaching us HIS Commandments.  HE would not tell us to begin some Holy Days at sundown and to begin other days in the morning.  There is nothing intelligent about such a directive – only confusion.  T.Y., Editor

Poetry and Prose Corner With A Message:

 

WE MUST WALK THE TALK

 

In the lands of our enemies exists only DECEPTION,

But because of GOD’s Manifold Mercies, we now know the TRUTH.

 

At every turn is assured incidents of DEATH,

People living in hope for elusive LIFE.

 

Though we bear depression in our souls and much  SADNESS,

Our GOD of Israel speaks of our returning to HIM and delighting in HIS HAPPINESS.

 

We live in the lands of our enemies eating defiled bread in CAPTIVITY,

Awaiting the HAND of Our GOD and SAVIOR for HIS DELIVERANCE.

 

For no more will Our GOD of Israel be playing games with the PHONY,

HE is now looking at the heart to see true REALITY.

 

In so many ways we have upset Our GOD of Israel and done BAD,

Hence, we must change our ways and live and do GOD’s GOOD.

 

Our Father, GOD of Israel, does not delight in disobedience and SIN,

That which HE loves and requires is living and doing RIGHTEOUSNESS.

 

The Dry Bones must stay alive and cease to STAND FOR EVIL,

They must become the Righteous Remnant and WALK THE TALK.

 

We no longer walk in DARKNESS,

For upon us is GOD’s LIGHT.

 

Our goal, being GOD’s Chosen People must be for cleansing in the WILDERNESS,

And then boast of the SALVATION of Our GOD in the LAND OF MILK AND HONEY.

FOR YOUR INFORMATION (FYI):

 

Libya's Gaddafi is Jewish and could find refuge in Israel

 

Israel’s Channel 2 News last year interviewed two Israeli women of Libyan origin who claimed to be distant relatives of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

The older of the two interviewees, Guita Brown, said she is Gaddafi’s second cousin (Brown’s grandmother was the sister of Gaddafi’s grandmother). The younger of the two women, Rachel Saada, granddaughter of Brown, explained in more detail:

“The story goes that Gaddafi’s grandmother, herself a Jewess, was married to a Jewish man at first. But he treated her badly, so she ran away and married a Muslim sheikh. Their child was the mother of Gaddafi.”

While Gaddafi’s grandmother converted to Islam when she married the sheikh, according to Jewish religious law (and common sense), she was ethnically still Jewish.

At this point the news anchor stated, “So, the point is that Gaddafi doesn’t just have Jewish relatives, he is Jewish!”

Rumors of Gaddafi’s Jewish background are nothing new. But with the current uprising in Libya that threatens to ultimately overthrow the dictator, as has happened in the neighboring countries of Tunisia and Egypt, Gaddafi may be looking for an exit strategy.

If the story told by Brown and Saada is true, Gaddafi is entitled to immigrate to Israel as a Jew under Israel’s Law of Return. Even if every other country on earth refused him entry, Israel would be obligated by its own laws to take Gaddafi in.

At the time of the interview, the anchor quipped, “I am sure there is some local authority in Israel that would be pleased to have a former president on its staff.”

Is Gaddafi a Jew?

 

First, President Ahmadinejad was claimed - if only briefly - to have Jewish roots, now it's the turn of President Gaddafi of Libya. But while there is little substance to Ahmadinejad's Jewish origins, Gaddafi may well be Jewish enough to help make up a minyan.

Israeli TV recently interviewed two Israeli women of Libyan origin. To be fair, rumours that Gaddafi has Jewish origins have been around for some time.


Rachel Saada and Guita Brown are related to Muamar Gaddafi. Guita's grandmother was the sister of Gaddafi's grandmother. She, a Jewess, had left her husband for a Libyan sheikh. They had a daughter: Gaddafi's mother. That makes Gaddafi halachically Jewish.

However, as the learned professor wheeled in to give her take on the matter says, it is all hearsay and there is no actual proof. And although the older interviewee claims, 'Gaddafi never said a word against the Jews,' a family tie with the old rogue and madman is not exactly something most would be proud of.


Note to those who come to this site seeking to discredit Gaddafi because of his Jewish grandmother: I would remind you that Gaddafi also had three non-Jewish grandparents. It is just as offensive and bigoted to blame them for Gaddafi's character defects. Gaddafi himself was responsible for the total ethnic cleansing of Libya of its ancient Jewish population, their persecution and dispossession. If he ever invoked his 'right of return' to Israel he would be arrested and tried for war crimes.

6.2 Mummies; Mummies and Disease in Egypt

I. EGYPT AND MUMMIES

The lives of ancient Egyptians were shaped by the environment around them, both for good and for bad. The land, the river and the climate were a great benefit to the people, but in some circumstances, that environment contributed to disease.

Egypt has a remarkable landscape. On either side of the Nile River run relatively narrow strips of land which provided the fertile fields for growing crops. Annually the seasonal flood deposited rich alluvial soils. The Nile River was described by the Arab traveler Ibn Battuta, who said that it 'surpasses all the rivers in sweetness of taste, in length of course and utility.' Egypt, 'the gift of the Nile' was an optimistic civilization. When the Nile flooded, the ancients would say that 'the fields laugh, men's faces light up, and God rejoices in his heart.' Egypt has also left us time travelers: its mummies. The arid climate and religious necessity for preservation have given us a remarkable glimpse at the health of its people.

.....

We associate mummies with Egypt; however, in recent times the term mummy has been extended to cover all well preserved dead bodies found anywhere in the world. The majority of these are found in dry places such as the sands of deserts or dry caves where desiccation has taken place rapidly. Occasionally bodies are found preserved in other ways. Well known mummies are known from Peru, China, Siberia and even Nevada. The 'Iceman' comes from the Alps.

Ancient Egyptians made mummification by artifice into big business for religious reasons: the spirit of a person could continue only if the body was preserved. The basic process of mummification, whether naturally or intentionally, is to remove water rapidly from the tissues. In Egypt, conditions were ideal: a dry climate and a naturally occurring salt called natron.

Egyptian embalmers used the natron supplemented with oils, resins, and bitumen. (My comment: The Greek traveler and 'father of history' Herodotus reported the Egyptian mummification process in detail.)

.....

II. THE ORIGIN OF THE TERM MUMMY

The origin of the term 'mummy' comes to us from medieval medical practice. You will find it strange. Mummy comes from the Persian word mummeia. It means 'pitch' or 'asphalt,' which was naturally occurring crude oil that oozed to the surface. Mummeia was a prized medicine in Europe, but was in limited supply.

In time, clever business entrepreneur took resin from mummies and sold it as mummeia. It wasn't long until entire mummies, including dried bones and flesh were ground up and peddled it as medicine also. Soon the term mummy was extended to the lot. Would you try it yourself?

If you find all of this bizarre, there is more to be told. The export of mummies became big business in the fifteenth century with their export for medicinal purposes. More were taken for European museum collections. Many ended up in private collections or the dusty basements of universities. In the nineteenth century, Canadian paper manufacturers imported mummies to use the linen wrappings to make high quality rag paper; the fate of the bodies is not known. Mark Twain reported the use of mummies for fuel in the steam engines of the Egyptian railways.

(My note: outright theft and pillage of Egyptian antiquities continued into the nineteenth century. Today it is just about impossible to remove an antiquity from Egypt legally. Many years ago, the Egyptian Museum authorities shrewdly sold many excess museum antiquities to other museums around the world. It resulted in much scholarly activity--and interests in Egyptian tourism.) Mummies are the most popular part of Egyptian exhibits in museums.

.....

III. DISEASES IN ANCIENT EGYPT

Health, disease, and culture are studied in medical anthropology both from a comparative and historical perspective. Mummies and the diseases they reveal offer insight into the past; they are time travelers from another age. Diagnosis via paleopathology is difficult; however, considerable success has been achieved in uncovering afflictions from the past. Infectious, congenital, neoplastic (cancer), and traumatic conditions are all present in abundance.

Ancient embalmers removed the internal organs and stored them separately in vessels called canopic jars--often items of fine art in themselves. The brain reportedly was removed by a metal hook inserted up through the nose. The function of the brain was not understood. DNA has been discovered, but only in small fragments, Do NOT expect Jurassic Park style cloning!

How are dry and brittle soft tissues studied microscopically? Sir Armond Ruffer opened the way by developing 'Ruffer's solution' which is alcohol and 5% bicarbonate of soda. It softens the tissue sufficiently for sectioning and microscopy. Techniques of mummy study include autopsy, X-Ray, Xeroradiography, CT scanning, scanning electron microscopy, endoscopy, and the newest darling of biochemistry--DNA study. Here is a short list of the findings.

(1) Congenital Disorders. Egypt is a major source of skeletal evidence for achondroplasia. One poignant specimen is an achondroplastic woman with her undeliverable fetus; in our day, a Caesarean section is necessary for a live birth. Two embalmed fetuses were recovered from Tutankhamun's tomb in 1926. One had a congenital defect--spinal bifida. Whether they were children of his wife Ankhesenamun is unknown. Club foot, cleft palate, and hydrocephalus have also been found.

(2) Acquired Disorders. Ancient Egypt gives us some of the earliest evidence for tuberculosis from the ancient world. There are several related types of the tubercle bacilli. The bovine and human strain is what threatened the health of the ancient Egyptians. It is extremely contagious. Overcrowding in many households provided the ideal conditions for the spread of disease. Tuberculosis is believed to have been acquired by humans from livestock.

Leprosy (Hansen's disease) is caused by a bacillus closely related to tuberculosis. The organism attacks specific areas of the body. Characteristic symptoms are mutilated hands and feet with the fingers and toes reduced to stumps. Few disease have produced such prejudice and cruelty; this affliction is often cited in the Bible. Experts say that transmission is difficult.

Schistosomiasis (a future profile in this course) is a parasitic disease that is a scourge in modern day Egypt. It is evident in mummies from ancient Egypt. The parasite is small and was not recognized until 1851. It is likely that the Egyptians never identified it. Smallpox, a viral disease believed to have come from domesticated cattle, has been confirmed from skin lesions in mummies. The most famous of these is Pharaoh Rameses V.

Poliomyelitis is suspected in a few mummies. One of the most common diseases found in ancient bones is arthritis. Joint diseases are a group of abnormalities. The cause of some of them is unknown. As people age so their bodies deteriorate and eventually the bodily systems break down. Osteoarthritis affect the synovial joints such as the knee and are acquired through advancing age or stress. As the joint is continually used, the cartilage wears away leaving bones rubbing together without any cushioning between them. Under this stress, the bone ends develop 'lipping' at the edges.

The osteoarthritic changes in joints give some insight into the occupations of the sufferers. Viziers and scribes sat cross-legged. Agricultural workers were continually bending and lifting. Studies in modern people show that boney outgrowths from the spine appear in most people by the fifth decade of life; by age ninety almost everyone has them.

Evidence of traumatic injury is abundant in the form of head injuries believed to be from blunt objects. Fractures of the radius and ulna (forearm) approach 50% in some populations.

Trephination has not been confirmed in ancient Egypt. Deliberate shaping of the skull during infancy has been found, but it is rare. We have a future unit on trephination.

There is little evidence for tumors, possibly because the life span in that time was so short. There are no known examples of breast cancer.

Blood vessels are well preserved in mummies and they provide accurate evidence of vascular disease. Diseases of the aorta and coronary arteries, with arteriosclerosis of the kidney and heart blood vessels tell us that the stresses of modern day highly civilized life are not the sole causes of degenerative vascular diseases. They are known from ancient Egypt.

.....

IV. DENTAL HEALTH IN ANCIENT EGYPT

Teeth are the hardest and the most indestructible of human tissues. Their shape is determined genetically, and in their calcification, they record important nutritional information. Wear patterns and dental caries ('cavities') tell much about ancient living and eating habits.

In ancient Egypt, the greatest single problem was attrition (wear). The teeth were rapidly worn down throughout life by the consumption of a course diet. This is true of both pharaohs and common farmers. In time, the wear becomes so extensive that the enamel and dentin are worn away, exposing the pulp. Painful chronic infection is the result. Dental surgeons of that time would drain the abscesses through a hollow reed.

The second greatest problem of both ancient and modern Egyptians is periodontal (gum) disease. Calculus (tartar) deposits on teeth were often so extensive that they held the teeth in place after death for 2,000 years. The result of these deposits is early bone loss, loose teeth, infection, and tooth loss.

Dental caries (cavities were far less frequently seen amongst ancient Egyptians and Nubians than in today's populations. We can cite two reasons. First, rapid wear literally wore away the sites of pit and fissure cavities. Second, is the absence the of refined carbohydrates.

Some orthodontic observations are of interest here. Ancient Egyptians and Nubians rarely had the dental crowding and abnormal molar relationships that are observed in Western cultures today. Many anthropologists and some dentists tell us that vigorous chewing encourages development of robust, full sized lower jaws and some degree of tooth wear minimized joint pain and tooth crowding that are prevalent today.

Some restorative dentistry from that period has been seen. In one mummy with missing teeth, three substitute teeth were in place skillfully threaded together to the abutment teeth with fine gold wire.

Why so much dental wear? Sand infiltrated their diet, especially by way of corn ground bread. Modern experiments have shown that a single grinding of corn produces a course flour. The more desired finely ground flour is produced by adding sand to the course flour which exacerbates the tooth wear process.

THE UN 2011, INTERNATIONAL YEAR FOR PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DESCENT

 

February 1, 2011

 

I ask that you bear with me, and the reason is that many of you do not espouse to my Spirituality.  Regardless, my heartfelt desires and concerns are for all people of color, and that we must speak in behalf of ALL Blacks who are persecuted, oppressed, and suffering in this present world system.  And because of my Spirituality, it is my conviction and staunch belief that true FREEDOM, RESETTLEMENT elsewhere (for those who want it), and REPARATIONS will be acquired and manifest through the WORKS of the CREATOR GOD – the same GOD that SAVED the Children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage.  Just in case you never noticed, our predicaments are very much the same.  The difference is that there has not been a mandate stating, “Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river”.  Nevertheless, there are covert instructions to judge Black males and Black females even for the smallest crimes and order them to jail for life.  And let’s not even go into the racial profiling that can get Blacks shot to death or landed in jail on trumped up charges.  Yes, I am fighting for Blacks to be free of this racism and for REPARATIONS for Blacks all over the world for this heinous Slave Trade, which was a crime against Blacks that has us still suffering.  So, whether you agree with my Spirituality or not, we can come together for the betterment, self-determination, and empowerment of all Black peoples in order that our children will not have to endure this present world order that keeps us in darkness, in captivity, and under White control.

Before writing my perspective to the United Nations’ Resolution concerning the 2011 International Year for People of African Descent, I read through many documents and E-mails related to our fight against racism and our battle for Reparations.  Although there are diverse ideals about how to attain Reparations, it is good that the great majority of us speak out and believe that we are justified in seeking it.  That which is of great import is that we are once again on the road to make this struggle come to fruition.  And this time, we cannot be slow to act, and we certainly cannot give up the fight. 

 

My platform and focus is that we be more aggressive in placing blame, which clearly falls on Colonial and U.S. governments for this cruel and barbaric Slave Trade in which 100 million Blacks died enroute to slave castles, while awaiting slave ships, during the Middle Passage and in the lands of the Slavers.  The United States is to be blamed also for the lynchings and thousands of injustices that followed unto this day without bringing the criminals to justice.  We must also focus on our FREEDOM and “release” from the grips of a system that has taken our forebears in chains and yokes out of Africa and completely ethnically cleansed us of our roots.  Next, we are within our human rights to have the government start RESETTLEMENT proceedings and REPARATIONS to meet the above objectives.  Whatever your concerns, keep the audacity to hope for FREEDOM, RESETTLEMENT, and REPARATIONS alive in these United States and in all countries and governments that stole Blacks out of Africa.

 

There is no question that savage racism is the makeup of the American Way and is a serious problem for Blacks and all people of color.  However, we have made racism the basis for Reparations without any success.  Hence, we have to consider an even greater approach and stratagem to meet our objectives.  We have to consider an even greater approach to not only resolve the issue of racism for Blacks who are proud to be Americans.  But for those of us who deplore the racism, injustice, corruption, and subjugation that permeate the US systems, and who want better lives elsewhere, we want lifestyles of excellence for our children and progeny.   And we must stand strong before the United Nations and insist upon self-determination - elsewhere - because it will never happen in the “Good Ol’ US of A”.  Thus, we must have our FREEDOM and RESETTLEMENT in stable and friendly countries of our choice that tolerate people of color.

 

We are well aware that the United States has become a country unfit for human habitation – not just because of the ill treatment of Blacks and other minorities but because the country’s waters and atmosphere are polluted beyond any means of remedy.  Thus, the country is diseased with race hatred and carcinogenic chemicals in the water and in the air that we breathe. 

 

I have long since admired my ambitious and goodhearted Black people who are always encouraging excellence in our undertakings.  However, we, as a group, have had little opportunity to accomplish our goals and our dreams, even though some of us are computer programmers, mathematicians, scientists, educators, engineers, doctors, and specialists in all fields.  Few Blacks are president and vice president of billion dollar corporations, and those employed in large corporations do not move up the ladder in positions that matter and salaries as do Whites.  And do not delude yourselves, no matter what the UN puts in writing, nothing is going to change in this country with a foundation built on a Holocaust, prejudice, segregation, and race hatred. 

 

Nevertheless, if we are in control of our own educational system, our governments, and our own social and economical systems, then we can make the necessary decisions for our own well-fare.  Let’s not forget Black Wallstreet.  That was an exceptional accomplishment Whites never intended to happen, and it has not occurred since they destroyed Wallstreet’s complete design and foundation.  Whites were appalled that Blacks could be so successful without their involvement, and they had to put and end to Wallstreet before it got so big that it was in competition with them.  To believe that another Black Wallstreet will happen again in the United States is to believe a lie.  The truth of the matter is that if there were no poor Blacks in the States and no Third-world countries existing in gross impoverishment, then there would be no White Supremacy. 

 

We have to rise above our plight and be inspired and encouraged to take our expertise elsewhere and establish the likes of our own Black Walstreet in countries that will be happy to receive it.  If Whites won’t invest in Blacks, then let Blacks invest in Blacks, and today we have Ghana, Nigeria, and other countries in South America and Africa with the finances willing to help in this regard, if we can prove our willingness to be successful and excel with the best of them.

 

We must go before the United Nations and seek our FREEDOM on the basis of the forced migration that brought our forebears to these shores and kept us here in this land of misery.  We must go before the United Nations and seek RESETTLEMENT opportunities because of this cruel displacement.  We must go before the United Nations for Reparations to finance our settlements/communities, housing, farms, school systems, and funding for our livelihoods and recreational centers, hospitals and clinics – much needed to give our people the required medical attention.  All these facilities are what will make our people self-supporting and viable citizens in societies that we will have established, as well as make us truly proud to be Black. 

 

The Slave Trade thrived because of the millions who were forcibly migrated to these shores (and to other countries), because of colonial America and the US government that perpetuated the control of many generations of Blacks in Slavery.  On these grounds also, it is our human right for justice to be served, and it is the duty of the United Nations to aid us in this cause and justice for the barbaric and cruel Slave Trade.  Human rights and FREEDOM for all is the basis and duty of the United Nations, and we at this point want justice served for all the atrocities committed against Slaves and against us. 

 

We must also be compassionate towards descendants of Slaves in other countries and speak in their favor, as well.  In this regard, we must cause the United Nations to understand the need for an International Foundation established for contributions from all countries that grew wealthy off the backs of Slaves in order that all descendants of Slaves might benefit from the untold criminal acts against Black humanity that has gone unresolved for far too long. 

 

It is imperative that any UN conferences involving the 2011 International Year for People of African Descent include “African American” representation equaling the same number of UN members addressing this issue.  This is what’s fair and justified on the basis of Colonial Americans insistence on “no taxation without representation” policy.

 

After reading the 2011, International Year for People of African Descent, I am not encouraged.  The idea and purpose are fine, but I read nothing written that will address our requests for FREEDOM, RESETTLEMENT, REPARATIONS, and an end to racism.

 

Excerpt from the Resolution adopted by the General Assembly:

 

Proclaims the year beginning on 1 January 2011 the International Year For People of African Descent, with a view to strengthening national actions and Regional and international cooperation for the benefit of people of African descent in Relation to their full enjoyment of economic, cultural, social, civil and political rights, their participation and integration in all political, economic, social and cultural aspects of society, and the promotion of a greater knowledge of and respect for their diverse heritage and culture:

 

Who compiled this report?  Are they people who are truly serious about 2011 being a productive year to address Black Agendas?  Everyone who is anyone in this country knows that the powers-that-be are well aware of the inequality, inequity, prejudice, and discrimination we face being people of color since the Slave Trade.  If this General Assembly is not aware, then without hesitation we can spend a two or three years before the United Nations taking turns citing passages in the annals of history involving all the heinous crimes of the Slave Masters and the double standards, isolation, and exclusion from the equal distribution of wealth and the job market, even since the end of Slavery in 1865!

 

Didn’t the person or Assembly Committee responsible for this Resolution know about Affirmative Action that did much of nothing to help our cause but that worked above and beyond for White Women?  Aren’t these people aware of the lily White Senate and AIPAC, another White but Jewish organization, that runs the House of Representatives and the Senate with bribes and that has concern only for White “Jews” and those whom they can exploit?  Isn’t this Assembly aware that these White “Jews” can successfully get their way and everything they want from this government and even have the chutzpah to object to rights that are due Blacks? And aren’t they aware of the KKK, the injustice in the judicial system, and the disproportionate number of Blacks incarcerated than Whites?  Didn’t this Assembly hear about President Bush pulling the US representatives out of the World Conference Against Racism?  Aren’t these people aware that this past December, the UN General Assembly voted and approved a resolution to hold a summit commemorating the Durban Conference Against Racism, and the US voted against this resolution?  There is but one way to fight the racism in this country, and that is to leave it!  There has been no American Dream for descendants of Slaves, no enjoyment or even hope of better lives, and participation in the economic benefits in this country have been nil.  And this “promotion of a greater knowledge of and respect for their diverse heritage and cultureis nothing more than a joke.  The school systems no longer are concerned with Multicultural Education, and when they were, it was mainly about the Jewish Holocaust ad nauseam, as if the Black Holocaust overshadowed their White Jewish thirteen years of pogrom.

 

If the General Assembly wanted to make descendants of Slaves believe that this Resolution is truly intended to make changes for the betterment of Blacks, then it should have implemented buzz words commonly used by Blacks who are fighting for our FREEDOM and fighting against RACISM and for JUSTICE SERVED for the SLAVE TRADE! 

 

The UN General Assembly should know by now that there is not much that will be done when the US government and other agencies are foremost in committing “racial discriminations”.

 

If no one can strengthen the office of the Presidency to be a voice for those who have none, how will anything positive ever be accomplished for Blacks in this place called “America the Beautiful”?  And I fail to understand what “Regional and International cooperation” entails and is in regard to our economic, cultural, social, civil and political rights, etc., etc. 

 

It appears to me that some folks at the UN attempted to write a Resolution that looked good on paper, but they failed miserably, as this document leaves much to be desired.  We must, at all costs, work in conjunction with ALL Committees and Conferences involving this 2011, International Year for People of African Descent, or our objectives will not be met.  Remember and take to heart, it is now time for us to have our voices heard loud and clear that descendants of Slaves are determined to have justice served for the Slave Trade and for the ensuing race hatred and savage injustice that has prevailed since forcing Blacks to this country.  We can no longer stand by and allow the White world governments to sweep the atrocities of the Slave Trade and racism under the rug, as if they never existed.  Tunisia, Egypt, and Jordan held demonstrations that we must consider and be as equally as determined to stand strong and be steadfast as have been the peoples of these countries.  Let’s not forget that money talks and peaceful demonstrations walk, if we ever want change in our lives and in the lives of our children.  What have we got to lose?

 

White folks and even some Blacks do not think we deserve Reparations.  If these are the ones who wrote this Resolution, then the first steps for justice have not been served.  Nevertheless, I appeal to the United Nations to give us at least half the wealth the government and the Slavers amassed off the backs of our forefathers, for without their labor, this country would not be the power in the world that it is, dwindling though that power may be.

 

I cannot close without a warning.  Without question, when REPARATIONS are rendered, those who will choose to stay in the US should know that efforts will be made to extend this restitution to everyone but to descendants of Slaves.  Even President Obama, a man, husband, and father that I deeply admire, has said that REPARATIONS can be provided in the form of better educational systems.  Taxes for educational systems are already in place, but just not for the Black ghettoes wherein have lived poor, impoverished Blacks for lack of the necessary education, employment, and salaries to bring them out of this dilemma. 

 

In the words of Dr. Conrad W. Worrill, “We must regain the momentum which the Reparations Movement had in the first few years of this century.”  And he is absolutely correct!

 

IN THE WORDS OF GOD’s SERVANT AND PROPHET MOSES:

 

“Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD.”

THE UNITED NATIONS AND PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DESCENT

            We must regain the momentum which the Reparations Movement had in the first few years of this century. The United Nations World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa recognized the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and Slavery as a Crime Against Humanity for which Reparations are due!

 

            The U. N. has declared 2011, the “Year for People of African Descent.” There are different activities being planned. As Malcolm X taught us, we must use the international arena to highlight our National Human Rights’ Demand for Reparations! Let us review the work of the December 12th Movement and NBUF leading up to the World Conference Against Racism. 

 

In 1999, the National Black United Front ( NBUF ) joined forces with the December 12th Movement in organizing a delegation of Africans in America to attend the United Nations World Conference Against Racism. The conference was held in Durban, South Africa from August 31st to September 7 , 2001 . We should never forget the impact and significance of this organizing project..

 

            The December 12th Movement International Secretariat, the International Association Against Torture , North South XXI has official Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) status with the United Nations. Over the last twenty years, this group has committed much of its organizing efforts to participating in the United Nations Human Rights Commission by presenting numerous issues that impact African people in America. They have been NBUF ’s eyes and ears at the U.N.

 

            As Atty. Roger Wareham of the December 12th Movement recently revealed in an article circulated on the internet, “Since 1997, when the U.N. agreed to hold this World Conference, the United States , Canada, and Western Europe (the WEO Group of countries) have done all they can to prevent it from succeeding.”

 

            In the spring of 1998 , at the African Group meeting during the Commission on Human Rights in Geneva, a Resolution was drafted identifying the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade as a Crime Against Humanity. The United States used all of its influence and blocked the resolution. However, this did not stop the momentum throughout the African World to pursue this resolution’s becoming an official position of the United Nations World Conference Against Racism.

 

            At the African Regional Preparatory Conference, for the World Conference Against Racism, held in Dakar, Senegal ( January 22-24, 2001 ), the African Ministers developed what has been called the “Dakar Declaration.”  In their deliberations, they affirmed, in part, the following:

 

-           Affirm that the slave trade is a unique tragedy in the history of humanity, particularly against Africans— a crime against humanity which is unparalleled, not only in its abhorrent barbaric feature, but also, in terms of its enormous magnitude, its institutionalized nature, its transnational dimension and especially its negation of the human nature of the victims.

 

-           Further affirm that the consequences of this tragedy accentuated by those of colonialism and apartheid, have resulted in substantial and lasting economic, political, and cultural damage caused to the descendants of the victims, the perpetuation of the prejudice against Africans on the continent and people of African descent in the Diaspora.

 

-                      Strongly reaffirm that States which pursued racist policies or acts of racial discrimination, such as slavery, colonialism, and apartheid, should assume their full responsibilities and provide adequate reparations to those States, communities and individuals who were victims of such racist policies or acts, regardless of when or by whom they were committed.

-                       

International law supports the position that the enslavement of Africans was a crime against humanity. The Charter of the Nuremberg Tribunal defined crimes against humanity in this manner: “Murder, extermination, enslavement, deportation, and other inhumane acts committed against any civilian population… whether or not in violation of the domestic law of the country where perpetuated.”

 

The African Reparations Movement explains that, “Historians and their experts can show, without difficulty, how the invasion of African territories, the mass capture of Africans, the horrors of the middle passage, the chattelization of Africans in America , and the extermination of the language and culture of the transported Africans, constituted violations of all these international laws.” Thus, the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade was a Crime Against Humanity and, it is clear, African people are owed reparations throughout the world.

 

Again, as Atty. Wareham explains, “Before the U.N. World Conferences are actually held, they are preceded by PrepCom (Preparatory Committee meetings) in the various geographical regions of the world where the actual content of the final document , the program of action was worked out, and the PreComs were completed. All of the regional PreComs are over. In Geneva, Switzerland, a working group meeting held March 6 –9 , 2001 to consider a Draft Declaration (the Durban Declaration) and tried to resolve a dispute about whether compensatory relief (i.e. reparations) should even be considered as a theme of the World Conference. This was only an issue because of U. S. and Western European opposition.” The dispute was not settled and another meeting will be held in May in Geneva.

 

The New York Times revealed, “A conference on racism this summer could be one of the most explosive meetings this organization (United Nations) has ever held, with moves afoot to cast globalization as a racial issue and to demand reparations for the slave trade and colonialism.”

 

For more than twenty years, the December 12th Movement International Secretariat has fought in defense of the human rights of African people at the United Nations, in both Switzerland and New York. During this time, they have come to help us understand that while we, as African people, may not recognize the importance of the international agency to the progress of our struggle, but the United States and its allies are crystal clear about it.

 

NBUF agrees with the December 12th Movement that we must continue to organize at the international level in bringing the issues of African people before the world and especially the issue of Reparations. One way we can continue this work is to organize around the United Nations declared 2011 “Year for People of African Descent.”

READING FOR THE SOUL TO STRENGTHEN OUR FEAR, LOVE, HOPE, AND TRUST IN THE MOST HIGH CREATOR GOD TO DO HIS WILL:

 

 

 

OUR FATHERS TRUSTED IN THEE:

THEY TRUSTED,

AND THOU DIDST DELIVER THEM

 

 

My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

 

 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.

 

 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

 

 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.

 

 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.

 

 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.

 

 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

 

 He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

 

 But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.

 

 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.

 

 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.

 

 Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

 

 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.

 

 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

 

 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

 

 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

 

 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.

 

 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

 

 But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me.

 

 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.

 

 Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.

 

 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.

 

 Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.

 

 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.

 

 My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.

 

 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.

 

 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

 

 For the kingdom is the LORD'S: and he is the governor among the nations.

 

 All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.

 

 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.

 

 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.”   Psalm Twenty-second Chapter

 

 

UNTO THEE WILL I CRY, O LORD MY ROCK

 

Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.

 

 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.

 

 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.

 

 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.

 

 Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.

 

 Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.

 

 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

 

 The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.

 

 Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.”   Psalm Twenty-eighth Chapter

 

 

BLESSED IS THE MAN THAT MAKETH THE LORD HIS TRUST

 

I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

 

 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

 

 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

 

 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

 

 Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

 

 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.

 

 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

 

 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law iswithin my heart.

 

 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.

 

 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

 

 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.

 

 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.

 

 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.

 

 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.

 

 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.

 

 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.

 

 But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.”   Psalm Fortieth Chapter

 

 

THE LORD GOD WILL WIPE AWAY TEARS

FROM OFF ALL FACES

 

O LORD, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.

 

 For thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.

 

 Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear thee.

 

 For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.

 

 Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.

 

 And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.

 

 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations.

 

 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.

 

 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this isthe LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

 

 For in this mountain shall the hand of the LORD rest, and Moab shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.

 

 And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swimmeth spreadeth forth his hands to swim: and he shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.

 

 And the fortress of the high fort of thy walls shall he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.”   Isaiah Twentieth-fifth Chapter

KING SOLOMON'S PRAYER

 

LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart: Who hast kept with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him: thou spakest also with thy mouth, and hast fulfilled it with thine hand, as it is this day.

 

Therefore now, LORD God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel; so that thy children take heed to their way, that they walk before me as thou hast walked before me. And now, O God of Israel, let thy word, I pray thee, be verified, which thou spakest unto thy servant David my father.

 

But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?

 

Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day: That thine eyes may be open toward this house night and day, even toward the place of which thou hast said, My name shall be there: that thou mayest hearken unto the prayer which thy servant shall make toward this place.

 

And hearken thou to the supplication of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place: and hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place: and when thou hearest, forgive.

 

If any man trespass against his neighbour, and an oath be laid upon him to cause him to swear, and the oath come before thine altar in this house: Then hear thou in heaven, and do, and judge thy servants, condemning the wicked, to bring his way upon his head; and justifying the righteous, to give him according to his righteousness.

 

When thy people Israel be smitten down before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee, and shall turn again to thee, and confess thy name, and pray, and make supplication unto thee in this house: Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy people Israel, and bring them again unto the land which thou gavest unto their fathers.

 

When heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou afflictest them: Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, that thou teach them the good way wherein they should walk, and give rain upon thy land, which thou hast given to thy people for an inheritance.

 

If there be in the land famine, if there be pestilence, blasting, mildew, locust, or if there be caterpillar; if their enemy besiege them in the land of their cities; whatsoever plague, whatsoever sickness there be; What prayer and supplication soever be made by any man, or by all thy people Israel, which shall know every man the plague of his own heart, and spread forth his hands toward this house: Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;)  That they may fear thee all the days that they live in the land which thou gavest unto our fathers.

 

Moreover concerning a stranger, that is not of thy people Israel, but cometh out of a far country for thy name's sake; (For they shall hear of thy great name, and of thy strong hand, and of thy stretched out arm;) when he shall come and pray toward this house; Hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for: that all people of the earth may know thy name, to fear thee, as do thy people Israel; and that they may know that this house, which I have builded, is called by thy name.

 

If thy people go out to battle against their enemy, whithersoever thou shalt send them, and shall pray unto the LORD toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house that I have built for thy name: Then hear thou in heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause.

 

If they sin against thee, (for there is no man that sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captives unto the land of the enemy, far or near;

 

Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness; And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name: Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause, And forgive thy people that have sinned against thee, and all their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against thee, and give them compassion before them who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them:

 

For they be thy people, and thine inheritance, which thou broughtest forth out of Egypt, from the midst of the furnace of iron: That thine eyes may be open unto the supplication of thy servant, and unto the supplication of thy people Israel, to hearken unto them in all that they call for unto thee.

 

For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord GOD.

PARENTS’ AND CHILDREN’S CORNER…

 

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old,

he will not depart from it.”

Proverbs 22:6

 

The works in this section of the JOURNAL are for our children.  I am delighted to include them, as these activities will serve to enlighten our youth about the “Old Testament” GOD of Israel and HIS concern for HIS Ways of Righteousness and for HIS Love for HIS People.  I encourage parents to read and interact with their children as they make efforts to answer the questions, complete the Word Search, and read the stories in this section.  Now, monthly, we really do have appropriate literature and activities for our Hebrew Israelite children.  In time, I shall add other things for them to do that will increase their knowledge and make learning fun. 

 

Feel free to copy this section and staple it together in the form of a booklet.  Take the time to design a cover page (even using Clip Art) and TYPE your child’s name at the bottom.  Make the activities fun and challenging as you get involved with them.
